A group of 37 foreign representatives, part of the Indian Technical and Economic Cooperation (ITEC) program run by the Indian Institute of Public Administration (IIPA), visited the Jaipur Metro to study and discuss heritage conservation.
A discussion session was organised at the Chintan Hall of the Mansarovar Metro Depot with the representative team. Detailed information about the challenges faced during heritage conservation and their resolution was provided to the team. All representatives actively participated in the discussion and also engaged in a question-and-answer session.
The President and Managing Director of Jaipur Metro, along with other senior directors, were present during the session. By conducting an overview of the Operational Command Center and Depot Workshop, we were able to gather valuable information that can contribute to the success of our operations.
Following this, the team travelled from Mansarovar Metro Station to Chhoti Chaupar Metro Station via Jaipur Metro. At the Art Gallery located in Chhoti Chaupar, they were briefed on sculptures, paintings, remains discovered during excavation at Chhoti Chaupar, antiquities, and artefacts of historical significance brought from various districts of the state, emphasizing the importance of understanding and preserving these objects.
P. Ramesh, the President and Managing Director of Jaipur Metro, expressed gratitude to all the foreign government representatives and highlighted the commitment of the Metro administration to preserve and protect the heritage of Jaipur city and its surrounding quadrilateral region.
