While the Zero Mile compound is full of dry grass and leaves, the Metro compound boasts of fresh green patches of grass watered regularly.

As per sources, a demo of the Nagpur Metro engine will be held in the morning on January 26, 2018, on the eve of Republic Day. We just hope that on that day the authorities also realize the need of maintenance at Zero Mile, a milestone which stood even when India became a republic 69 years back.
