Kochi Metro Rail Limited (KMRL) has slashed parking rates for commuters.
Sharma, who is also the Additional Chief Secretary for special projects in the state, added that KMRL has big plans for the city.
KMRL has decided to implement a slew of COVID-19 preventive measures, from disinfecting the trains after every trip to deploying digital thermal scanning cameras, once the services are restored.
The trial aimed at ensuring that all the components of the signaling system were working properly.
They will be given specialised training for dealing with security issues in Metro trains and detecting explosives.
Kochi, one of the cities selected by the Centre for the Smart City Mission project, will get its share from the funds.
