    New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi will visit Kanpur on December 28 to inaugurate the entire Kanpur Metro Rail project and the Bina-Panki Multiproduct Pipeline project. The Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) said on Sunday.

    The Prime Minister will also address the 54th Convocation of Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Kanpur.

It extends nine kilometers from IIT Kanpur to Moti Lake.

    According to the statement, the Prime Minister will inspect the Kanpur Metro Rail Project and board the Metro from IIT Metro Station to Geeta Nagar. The entire length of the Kanpur Metro Rail project is 32 km and it is being constructed at a cost of over Rs 11,000 crore.

    The 356-km long non-punk multiproduct pipeline project has a capacity of about 34.5 million metric tons annually, the statement said. Extending from Bina Refinery in Madhya Pradesh to Panki in Kanpur, the project has been constructed at a cost of over Rs 1,500 crore. This will help in the transportation of petroleum products from refineries in the region.

    The Prime Minister will be the chief guest at the convocation ceremony of IIT Kanpur. During the convocation, digital degrees will be awarded to all students through an in-house blockchain-driven technology developed at the Institute under the National Blockchain Project.
