For it is now a matter of just two weeks before you collect your Rs one lakh cheque and proclaim: “Namma Metro dances (read moves) to my tune.”

Competition result

A four-member committee which has been vetting over the tunes for over a month now will come out with the result of the ‘Signature Tune’ competition that the BMRCL had called for in October last year.

The invitation for entries closed on October 30, 2010 and about 101 entries were accepted.

Metro sources told Deccan Herald that a committee has been going through the tunes for over a month now and soon the results will be made public –– with the winner’s tune becoming an integral part of Metro’s brand building.

The tune will be played every time a ‘Namma Metro’ advertisement is aired and before announcements at the stations.

BMRCL spokesperson B L Y Chavan said: “Four members, all from the music industry, are judging the entries and the result should be out in about two weeks.”

Refusing to name the jury, he said all of them are from Karnataka and that there is one music producer and one artiste in the committee.
