Kerala Government launches first ever Water Metro project in the country

Kerala Government has launched Kochi Water Metro project, the first ever Water Metro project of the country. It was launched by Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan at Kochi, Kerala. The project aims to provide water connectivity to people living between islands in the Kochi agglomeration area and the city. The Water Metro project would be dedicated to the nation in four years. It will be built at an estimated cost of rs. 747 crore. The Water metro project involves the purchase of two variants of air-conditioned and WiFi-enabled catamaran passenger ferries with a capacity of 50 and 100 passengers.

The project will be implemented by the Kochi Metro Rail Limited (KMRL) and funded by German Development Bank (Kfw). In this regard, KMRL has also signed an agreement with German Development Bank (Kfw). It will become operational in two years. The Water Metro will connect the islands spread across Kochi backwaters to the main city. The project involves the construction of jetties, roads and other basic facilities apart from boat services. It would make the urban water transport network in the city modern and safer.

So let’s discuss some questions related to this post: 
1. Name the state which has launched the first ever Water Metro project in the country?
2. The country’s 1st Water Metro project will be funded by which organization?
