How this is related to .IN domain name extention?
I was just curious to find out what are the domain names in use for this project , there are multiple domain names i feel important to consider , the first one is the official website of Hyderabad Metro Rail Limited (HMRL)- hmrl.telangana.gov.in.
Next one is project execution company L&T Metro website, they are using LTMetro.in and lTMetroHyderabad.in. They also own lTMetro.com but they prefered to use .IN over .Com.
On a different note, parent company L&T also owning few short names like LnT.in and LnT.co.in. L&T main website is on a .COM and registered in 1997 much before the .IN extension available for public use.
