Maharashtra government to extend Mumbai Metro corridors to Mira-Bhayandar 30.3.2017 DNA: Recent Columns
In a relief for passengers travelling to the airport and residents of Mumbai's extended suburbs of Mira- Bhayander, the Maharashtra government has decided to extend the ongoing works on the Metro railway corridors to connect these areas. It will also make Metro routes interoperable, which will enable better connectivity in Mumbai and the Mumbai Metropolitan Region (MMR). “Today, we have decided to extend the Metro II project from DN Nagar to Dahisar and Metro VII from Andheri East to Dahisar East to the Mumbai airport in the south and Mira Bhayander in the north,” Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis told the state legislative assembly on Tuesday. Noting that this would ease the pressures on the Mumbai suburban railway, Fadnavis recalled his experience of traveling in a crowded train from Mira Road station to South Mumbai in the morning rush hour. “We are ensuring connectivity in such a manner that the Metro III (Colaba- Bandra- SEEPZ) and Metro II-B from DN Nagar to Mandale and the Wadala- Ghatkopar-Thane- ...

Alleging that the Mumbai Metro Rail Corporation Limited (MMRCL) was violating National Green Tribunal (NGT) orders, which restricts any work from being carried out at the Aarey colony, those operating tabelas AT Unit 19 as well as environmentalists held a protest on Friday noon against soil testing machines being deployed. According to Rahil Nandolia, one of the licensees who runs a tabela at Unit number 19 of Aarey Milk Colony and was active in arranging a protest, it was on Thursday night that soil testing machines were brought and set up at Unit number 19 close to Jogeshwari Vikroli Link Road (JVLR). “On Wednesday contractors of MMRCL came to our site and they told us that they have to start work on construction of a ramp. In fact when we informed them about NGT orders prohibiting any work inside Aarey and asked for permission, they told us that they have permissions, we will have to go to MMRCL office to see the documents,” said Nandolia, adding that they were also surprised when the soil testing ...

The bidding process for the Dahisar-Mira Road-Bhayandar (Metro 10) line is likely to commence later this year so as to coincide with Mira-Bhayandar Municipal Corporation (MBMC) elections to be held in August. If tenders are invited in the next few months, construction can start either by year-end or early 2018 by the Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA). Presently, the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) is working on the feasibility and detailed project report for Metro 10. The report will likely be submitted in a month or by April-end. "Once we get DMRC's report, we may approve it in the next authority meeting. Thereafter, it may be presented before the state cabinet for approval," said UPS Madan, Metropolitan Commissioner, MMRDA.

No fresh taxes in Maharashtra budget, rural economy to get a boost 19.3.2017 DNA: Top News
Trying to administer a booster shot to the state’s ailing agriculture sector, Maharashtra Finance Minister Sudhir Mungantiwar unveiled a slew of measures aimed at adding value to rural economy. In a budget speech marred by unprecedented sloganeering by the opposition Congress-NCP combine seeking loan waivers for farmers, Mungantiwar refrained from announcing fresh taxes or populist projects. However, foreign liquor, Indian Made Foreign Liquor (IMFL) and country liquor, will become costlier due to an increase in value added tax (VAT), while card swipe machines, milk testing kits, soil testing kits and aviation turbine fuel (ATF) for aircraft operating at Maharashtra’s 10 small airports under the regional air connectivity scheme will become cheaper. With the Goods and Services Tax (GST) all set to be implemented from July 1, 2017, the state aims at generating additional revenues through non-tax sources such as court fees and charges for services. Mungantiwar announced allocations for memorials of ...

The Karnataka High Court on Friday dismissed a PIL seeking directions to expedite the Metro rail link between Mantri Square Mall and Majestic.
