In a statement Tuesday, the Delhi Development Authority said the L-G has expressed concern over the slow progress on the implementation of the plan and lack of co-ordination among various agencies like DMRC, PWD, Traffic Police, municipal corporations and DTTDC.

The DMRC has been directed to prepare detailed drawings of the plan for all Metro stations and forward the same within three months to the executing agencies.
