The Bombay high court on Friday adjourned the hearing of a dispute between the Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA) and Reliance Infrastructure Ltd over fare hike on Mumbai Metro to next week.
Justice RD Dhanuka adjourned by a week an arbitration petition filed by MMRDA for relief in the matter of fixation of Metro fares after Reliance filed an affidavit.
The MMRDA said it received the affidavit only on Friday and hence needs time to file its reply. Reliance Infrastructure Ltd, part of Reliance Anil Ambani group, filed its say in court to oppose the MMRDA plea and to justify its stand. More info
