BEL Presented SWAGAT to the Nation

Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Modi, launched SWAGAT on the occasion of inaugural of Phase I of the Ahmedabad Metro on 4th March 2019.
SWAGAT is a national initiative steered by the Ministry of Housing & Urban Affairs (MoHUA) in collaboration with BEL and CDAC with the support of Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC), National Payment Corporation of India (NPCI) and State Bank of India (SBI).

BEL is taking up the large-scale manufacturing and deployment of the System at its well-equipped manufacturing facilities.
With this, India will join the group of very few elite nations who have successfully developed and deployed this technology.
