Mauritius and India have just signed a new MoU concerning the Metro Express project.

According to the deal, Mauritius will receive an additional grant of US$10 million for the Metro Express and community development projects and another US$25 million for the
extension of the Metro Express from Réduit to St-Pierre/ Côte-d’Or.

Two Letters of Intent for the grant assistance were exchanged by Indian High Commissioner to Mauritius, Mrs. Nandini Singla, and the Secretary to Cabinet and Head of the Civil Service, Mr. Nayen Koomar Ballah, during a ceremony held in Port-Louis.

In a statement, the Indian High Commissioner underlined that India has been offering its support to Mauritius for the implementation of key infrastructure projects such as the New Supreme Court, the New ENT Hospital, including other significant ones in the pipeline such as the new Civil Service College, the Police Academy and the new Forensic Science Lab. 

A total of USD 1 Billion is being catered by the Indian Government for this project, out of which 30% is being offered as a grant to Mauritius, she said.
