Monday and Wednesday are crucial for Metro commuters, as the contentious Fare Fixation Committee (FFC) report will be tabled in Monday’s board meeting of Mumbai Metro One Private Limited (MMOPL) and the Supreme Court will hear the petition on fares on Wednesday.

On Monday’s agenda of MMOPL’s first board meeting after the FFC report has been submitted, there is a list of compliances on the Versova-Andheri-Ghatkopar Metro. Thereafter, the FFC report, which will be presented to the board, is most likely to be discussed and deliberated.

The discussions are likely to be on the recommendations made by the FFC of charging fares starting from Rs10 to Rs110 with a difference of Rs10 for each station travelled. The board comprises Reliance Infrastructure and state government officials, who are at loggerheads with each other on the subject of fares.

“As this report has been submitted in the last fortnight, it will have to be presented to the board,” said an official. More info
