However, formal internal trial run of Nagpur Metro date is yet to be finalized. According to the sources, Mahametro officials want to invite Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis, Union transport minister Nitin Gadkari and Chairperson-cum-Managing Director of SBI, Arundhati Bhattacharya for the trial but unfortunately, they are unable to get the three together on the same day.

However, Dixit confirms that trial work will not be affected by the delaying of the function.
