Indore: The municipal corporation and Indore development authority(IDA) met the Larsen & Toubro(L&T) officials in relation to conceptualise the possibilities of introducing the monorail in the city. The firm that is also working on a similar project in Mumbai has undertaken the assessment of the city roads in relation to the project.
