Challenges` was declared the winner today. The prestigious
`Rajat Kamal` award will be conferred to the film by President

Challenges` is a 30 minute documentary which highlights the
technical difficulties and challenges faced by the engineers
during the construction of Delhi Metro?s Phase two under which
125 kilometres of Metro lines were constructed in only four
and a half years.

challenges that the DMRC confronted during the construction
work in such an easy manner that people with non-engineering
backgrounds would also easily understand, a DMRC spokesperson
The film showcases the various challenges that the DMRC

metre span at Okhla over railway tracks, the signature bridge
over the Ring Road at Moolchand, the viaduct over Dhaula Kuan,
