Recently in Chennai too, the government has not only started work on Metro-Rail, but even started feasibility study on Mono-Rail, which in simple terms is nothing but a train on rails. We certainly have to start thinking about augmenting our public transport in every city, as the number of private vehicles on Indian roads are increasing at an alarming rate, and so is the frequency of accidents. In India we cannot think of doing a Car-Lottery like China, where one has to participate in a lottery to get a licence plate for his car. If he is not lucky enough then he can certainly own a car, but not drive it on the roads.
