EMU costing not to take leasing charges
Cf: Nanjundappa Committee Report

Separate sub detailed head for EMU like in
Mumbai and Calcutta

Recommendations:
Like in Mumbai, a separate Urban Rail Transport Corporation under the authority of Union Ministry of Urban Development with the stack holders local self-government (municipal corporations), Non-Banking Finance Corporation, Infrastructure Development Companies, State Govt, and the public may be formed.
Already, M/s Chennai Metro Rail Corporation has finalized taking over of MRTS –Railways. (Mass Rapid Transport System – Railways.
A similar system of urban transport is prevalent in European Union. In Italy, the ‘Trans Alto Velocita’ has bifurcated the train operation into rail and wheel separation. The Rail infrastructure is invested by various stack holders.   
Like in Malaysia, bus connectivity Rapid Bus with railheads Rapid Rail may be initiated.
Proper compensation for the surrender of infrastructure and rolling stock, signal and OHE is to be acquired from Union Ministry of Urban Development.
