The Jaipur Metro Rail Corporation (JMRC) is engaged in drafting rules for recruitment of staffers. The recruitment procedure is expected to take more than six months. After finalizing the draft the advertisement of recruitment will be issued and application will be invited.
The draft will set down the eligibility criteria. One of the criteria might be that natives of Rajasthan will get priority in the recruitment. The preference for native candidates depends over the place where the project is being executed. The Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) mostly sought applicants from Indian origin. But, the qualification criteria changed a bit when the DMRC took over the Kochi metro project. In the recent recruitment advertisements, the DMRC has made it mandatory for the applicants to be conversant in Malayalam for Kochi metro.
The manpower primary include technical staffers, drivers, stations masters and engineers who will be deployed to maintain and operate trains plying on Mansarovar to Chandpole route by June, 2013. If possible, the natives of Rajasthan might get preference in the recruitment. However, the JMRC officials are tight-lipped over the eligibility criteria. It is assumed that recruitment might be over by this December when the civil works for metro will be finished.
With the rapid industrialization and commercial development of Jaipur city, teamed with a growing population, the transport infrastructure of Jaipur city was found to be stressed. As a result, the government mulled over establishment of Jaipur Metro on the lines of Delhi Metro which had proved to be a great success. Accordingly, DMRC was asked to do a feasibility study for Jaipur Metro. Once found feasible, a company under the name Jaipur Metro Rail Corporation Limited was incorporated on 1 January 2010 under the Companies Act, 1956. Detailed Project Report (DPR) of the project was prepared by Delhi Metro Rail Corporation Limited , New Delhi. In April 2011, Jaipur Metro Rail Corp appointed Mott MacDonald to advice on the tendering for the first 2 lines totalling 35km and costing Rs 100 billion
