The MoU was signed in presence of chief minister Neiphiu Rio and parliamentary secretary transport P. Dako Phom besides other officials.
According the Lalthara the metro cable was successfully implemented in some South American and Middle East countries.
Funds for the project will be accessed from the government of India or foreign funding agencies through the efforts of Rangarsons Resources, who would be acting as advisors for the project. The cable system would be implemented jointly by North East Infraprojects Pvt Ltd, and (LEA & A Pvt Ltd) New Delhi, said the communiqué.
