Yogi Adityanath, the Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh, unveiled the first look of the Agra metro train on August 8. In February 2023, the first set of trains for the metro project will be delivered to Agra from their manufacturing plant in Gujarat's Savli. The Uttar Pradesh Metro Rail Corporation (UPMRC) has signed a contract with rolling stone giant Alstom India to manufacture trains for the Taj City metro project. Alstom will also provide the CBTC signalling system for the Agra and Kanpur metro rail projects, according to the agreement.

Previously, the company collaborated with other state governments on metro projects in Haryana, Hyderabad, and Gujarat.

The UPMRC has already begun soil testing for the underground stations, and construction is well underway.

During a press conference on August 8, UPMRC Director Sushil Kumar stated that the first metro corridor will connect various historical sites and famous markets in Agra.
