The Mumbai Metro 1 corridor that connects Versova to Ghatkopar via Andheri, on Tuesday had 4 lakh commuters ferrying the route on Tuesday.  The reason for the rise in travellers was the heavy rains that started at 2pm.

The Bombay High court on Tuesday extended the ban on any work being carried out between 10 pm to 6 am on the Metro-3 line between Colaba and SEEPZ by two weeks. A division bench of Chief Justice Manjula Chellur and Justice NM Jamdar also refused permission to Mumbai Metro Rail Corporation Limited (MMRCL) for allowing it to use heavy vehicles for transportation of construction material during the night.

In response to the petition, MMRCL has filed an ...

Metro work leads to changes in Azad Maidan's Ramleela 19.9.2017 DNA: Popular News
Officials from the Mumbai Metro Rail Corporation (MMRC), executing the Metro-3 project, have assured the iconic Ramleela Mandal at Azad Maidan that noise from the metro work will not bother them during the 10-day long festivities. This, the mandal says, is important because it means that the noise from the metro work will not drown out the performance. Shree Maharashtra Ramleela Mandal has been organising the Ramleela at Azad Maidan for almost four decades now. However this year the mandal has been moved almost 200 meters away from their original spot and the land in the new spot is marshy. "Due to the ongoing metro work, we had to change the place within the maidan. The land in the new spot is a bit marshy and rains are unpredictable thus increasing our problem," said Suresh Mishra, General Secretary of the mandal. He added, "We spoke to officials at the Metro site about the noise which would have been a huge problem for us but now they have assured us that the work is either underground or not much so ...

Housing min bats for FSI upgrade in megacities 17.9.2017 DNA: Wide Angle
To address the issue of land scarcity in the country, even as rapid urbanisation takes over, Hardeep Singh Puri, the housing and urban affairs minister, on Saturday directed a review of the Floor Space Index (FSI) and Floor Area Ratio (FAR) for all megacities. He also batted for a dense and vertical growth of cities, stating that it would benefit citizens as well as urban mass transit systems in development. He added that increasing urban land availability was imperative to meet the affordable housing demand.

To tackle this, government think-tank Niti Aayog in August drafted a three-year action agenda drafted and recommended that urban spaces be expanded manifold by relaxing the permitted FSI, which it stated, was extremely low at present, ranging ...
