Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA) officials seem to be unhappy with the report submitted by Fare Fixation Committee to Mumbai Metro One Private Limited (MMOPL) which might allow the operator of the 11.07 Km Versova Andheri Ghatkopar metro line one to increase the fares and so the planning authority might approach Supreme Court.
At present the commuters using the 11.04 Km VAG metro corridor pay fares of Rs 10, Rs 20, Rs 30 and Rs 40. At present around 2.8 lakh passengers use the VAG metro everyday and so it might not increase the fares by higher rates but it might gradually increase the rates. When mid day asked a senior MMRDA official that has it received the report, the official said, “ I have read about the same in the news reports and given by what I have read , I would like to say that this is not acceptable at all and we would approach the supreme court against the same.
” The MMRDA official also claimed that they had even demanded for the copy of the report from MMOPL but MMRDA was told that only one copy was given. The MMRDA has also written to MMOPL to provide a copy of the report. More info
