While talking to mediapersons at Ernakulam Press Club on Tuesday, he said that the bonds are not for least rate.

"Kochi Metro Rail Limited received Rs.1,350 crore for Kochi Metro from the French funding agency AFD at a nominal interest rate of 1.3 per cent.

 

The KMRL's Water Metro project is getting Rs.582 crore from German agency KfW at an interest rate of 1.55 per cent.
