The Old city part of Metro rail works comes under 16 km Corridor-II (JBS to Falaknuma) of the project which, as of now, work is going on from JBS to MGBS only. After this decision to include Old city in the project, it extends from MGBS to Falaknuma, a 6 km stretch.

Municipal Administration and Urban Development Minister KT Rama Rao held a review meeting recently where he instructed the Hyderabad Metro Rail Limited (HMRL) authorities to begin work on the six km Metro stretch in the Old City.
