The metro rail project for the city cleared a bureaucratic step on Monday as Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC) obtained permission from the railway department.
According to PMC officials, the metro rail project would require land from railway ministry.
The administration was waiting for a go-ahead to use this property. Works such as laying of railway tracks are expected to be carried out on this patch of land.
had given applications and was seeking a noobjection certificate from the railway department. The administration has received it from the ministry,“ PMC's traffic planner Shrinivas Bonala said.
The project is now awaiting the final go-ahead from the Union government. After getting a clearance from the public finance board, the green signal from the Union cabinet would be given, after which actual ground work would commence.
The Pune metro plan was sent to the public investment board (PIB) earlier in 2014.
It had raised some queries on the detailed project report and suggested changes.The PMC and the state government made the changes and sent it to the Union government.
The Union government had in June 2015 given the green signal to the changes in the metro route.
The alignment of the route was shifted from J M Road to alongside Mutha river.
A group of prominent personalities, however, have opposed the new alignment as a part of the route will pass through the river bed.
They have filed an environmental interest litigation in the National Green Tribunal (NGT) against the plan.The tribunal is scheduled to hear it in September.
The total proposed length of the metro in Pune is 31.51km. It will run on two corridors -the first 16.59km between Pimpri Chinchwad Municipal Corporation and Swargate and the second 14.92km from Vanaz to Ramwadi.
The revised estimate for the project announced by the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation is pegged at Rs 11,522 crore, a hike of Rs 653 crore from the 2014 estimate.

Muktha River bed via Metro line laying is a good idea
It has strengthen the River bed and lcost of land are also less.Moreover in the road alignment so many trees have to be cut.and execution also tedious in road sector with diversion during execution.
Moreover ,In Chennai MRTS lines are mostly executed on the free land along the Bunkingam canal and lesser part along Adayar River bed.MRTS executed successfully and completed in time because of lesser land acquired required for this project.
Similarly Mula - Muktha River bed alignment also executed early without any hurdles and traffic blockages are also mostly nil in this route.
