"The inauguration of India's first autonomous metro train demonstrates the country's rapid progress toward smart systems. The National Common Mobility Card is now connected to the Delhi Metro. When the impact of urbanisation and its future were both obvious a few decades ago, the country had a different attitude "PM Modi stated.
