"The report is expected to be submitted before June 15.
The field survey has been completed while the land survey
would be started soon.

Work on Monorail civil structure designing and station designing are progressing at the DMRC`s Delhi office," Sreedharan told reporters.

The first phase is expected to cost around Rs 1,750
