Indian cities have undergone a tremendous urban transformation, particularly in the previous three decades. Urbanization is on the rise, infrastructure is being built quickly, and the social fabric is diversifying, all of which have an impact on the physical environment. It's important to observe that in India, Applied Planning Policies frequently address Urban Transformation brought on by the socioeconomic requirements of the city and aggressive market forces. The quality of a country's transportation infrastructure is one of the most important indicators of its wealth. The main Indian metropolises' economic success has increased as a result of the increased international trade, financial flows, and inter- and intra-city travel. The transportation industry is broad and diversified, but it also confronts its own set of problems that may be solved by using energy-efficient technology and a customer-focused approach. The construction of a Mass Rapid Transit System (MRTS) project is often anticipated to increase property prices in any given city. Customers, household members, and employees may commute from their homes to their places of employment and to other locations with ease thanks to the MRTS system. It provides the fastest, safest, and most dependable method of commuting. Bengaluru, the capital and largest city of Karnataka, is served by the Bangalore (Namma) Metro, an urban MRTS with two lines and 51 stops. The study on the effects of metro trains on land use, socioeconomic features, and historic structures is thoroughly reviewed in this publication. The evaluation made it clear that additional study is necessary to determine how the effect of metro rails may be "quantified" in ways that are straightforward and approachable. Users must notice a noticeable difference in trip times from the baseline before they will find the system more enticing than alternative public transportation options.
