The Prime Minister will lay the foundation stone for the Bengaluru Suburban Rail Project (BSRP), which will link Bengaluru city with its suburbs and satellite townships to improve its transportation and connectivity. The project, estimated to cost over 15,700 crores, would consist of four corridors with a total length of approximately 148 kilometres.
