Following inspections at areas between Cyber Towers and Raheja Mindspace junction by DGP, Mahendar Reddy, MD, HMR NVS Reddy, Commissioner, GHMC Dana Kishore and other senior officials, important decisions were taken in a review meeting to help smooth completion of Metro Rail without causing inconvenience to the people.
