外文标题：We are not getting Metro coaches from China: DMRC
NEW DELHI: Delhi Metro Rail Corporation on Tuesday denied reports of receiving 21 metro coaches from a Chinese manufacturer.
“We would like to clarify that the DMRC has neither placed any order nor received any Metro coach from the Chinese train manufacturer, CSR Zhuzhou Electric Locomotive, as claimed by the reports published in some media,” said Anuj Dayal, executive director (corporate communications), DMRC.
CSR Zhuzhou Electric Locomotive, a subsidiary of major Chinese train manufacturer CSR Corporation, had claimed it supplied 21 cars to Delhi’s metro rail system.
Earlier, the Chinese state media had reported that the company recieved its second order from India as it had exported 15 metro cars to the Delhi Metro in 2010.
The locomotive company had claimed the trains would be more energy-efficient and an industry model in India which is hit by power shortages.
CSR is the world’s largest manufacturer of electric locomotives and is China’s leading bullet-train maker.

The fact remains that our great country is not capable of manufacturing these coaches. We claim to have best of engineering talent but still we can not manufacture metro coaches and power equipments for power plants. We are proud Indians and proud to provide business and employment abroad. Hum bhukey rahe kar Dosro ka pet bhartey hain sorry hum apni janta ko bhuka rakh kar apni tijori bhartey hain.

Yes you are right. We make rockets and ICBMs, but not Metro Coaches useful for public transport.

Very good reporting. Most accurate – In the Indian interests – just a brilliant job whoever did it.

Perhaps the journalist who wrote the report should verify the order, shipping and customs documents. It may be tedious process, but it is well worth the effort to inform the readers of the article. Perhaps the journalist will gain credibility from the reader.
Media should not jump on news immediately, must be verified. Good we should not bye metro couches from China.

Yeah and Kill the Indian companies like BEML. Cant blame Delhi Metro if they did this as they will have go by competitive bidding and most certainly Chinese will be cheaper than our home grown BEML. What ails our country. Why cant we be competitive . Why cant we get even domestic orders leave alone export orders.
All infrastructure priucts mfg. companies need subsidy or govt support. In india we donot want govt companies to be subsidized even if they are doing social good. china subsidizes its infrastructure mfg.companies , so this is the reason why Indian companies are not able to produce good quality infrastructure goods.

NOTE :- DMRC says it is not getting coaches from China. But that does not say (or does say) that they have not given the order to the chinese company. It could be that, the chinese company might have received the order, but they may be manufacturing the coaches in some other country like Malaysia or Singapore. Hence, speaking tactically, “The coaches are not being brought from China, but from somewhere else……….but by a chineses firm”.

CRS is a huge company and it is unlikely that they will issue false statements. DMRC never said whether they procured coaches from China or not, they very cleverly stated that they didn’t procure metro coached from CSR Zhuzhou Electric Locomotive ONLY. CRS may have sold it through some other subsidiary of theirs.

Metro should take decisions purely on economic and commercial considerations.

So who can be trusted of speaking the truth? The Delhi Metro Rail Corporation or the Zhouzhou Electric Locomotive Company.

what we know is that now the metro coaches are made in India not imported so how could China report such non sense

soon… china is actually eating up india’s economy…..
Made in India. Jai Ho.

Eversince Sreedharan has left DMRC it is getting into deeper soup everyday. Now what is the shame if DMRC has received coaches from China? The Jaipur Metro is also getting coaches from China and DMRC is in-charge of Jaipur Metro. Mumbai Metro has also got coaches from China too. The need of the hour is to run extra trips of Metro id rakes are available.

This news is carefully planted by the Jewish media. It is no secret that Jews and China are strong allies. China does not manufacture bullet trains they bought these from France and Germany. The Chinese being backward and stupid have difficulty in absorbing these systems. Indian railway system is indigenous and effective.
