Under the contract, HFCL will not only install and commission the telecom systems, but will also train staff for it, the statement added.

Earlier this year, the railway strategic business unit of infrastructure major Larsen and Toubro (L&T) had bagged a Rs 3,191 crore order from Dhaka Mass Transit Company for construction of a railway line for Dhaka Metro.

L&T had also secured a Rs 3,375-crore order from the Mauritius government-led Metro Express Ltd to design and build an integrated light rail-based urban transit system in the island nation.

The proposed Mauritius project will establish a 26-km-long metro line with 19 stations, while the Dhaka Metro Mass Rapid Transit System Project will be along a 20-km route with 16 stations and a maintenance depot.
