The state has yet to approve Metro Line 5A (Bhiwandi-Kalyan)
Metro Line 5A between Bhiwandi and Kalyan is waiting for state approval to proceed underground,
According to a representative of the Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA).
This organization implements all Metro lines except Metro 3.
In order to build the elevated railway, hundreds of buildings must be destroyed,
Which would result in significant financial compensation. The official explained that taking
the proposed route underground would prevent the removal of existing structures,
Thich would result in significant financial compensation.
