MMRDA, jail officials face off over installation of cutters 12.8.2017 DNA: Wide Angle
While the Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA) readies itself to make the second phase of the monorail between Wadala and Jacob Circle operational by this year end, the long stand-off between jail authorities at Arthur Road jail and MMRDA does not seem to end. The jail authorities have said that the MMRDA has not installed steel 'view cutters' to block the view of the jail premises on the monorail route. Senior MMRDA officials, however, maintain that they had written to jail authorities and the home department expressing the inability to install the view cutters. The MMRDA has been contending that monorail takes only 15 seconds to pass through the prison premises and the idea of installing steel view cutters is not feasible technically and financially. "There has been no reply and hence it is anticipated that installation of steel view cutters is an issue," a senior MMRDA official said. However, when contacted, Arthur Road jail superintendent, Harshad Ahirrao, told DNA, "Authorities ...

Which zone do you pick? 27.7.2017 Deccan Herald - Supplements
Bengaluru has consistently emerged as one of the top real estate investment hotspots on account of the expansion of its IT corridors, capital inflow by foreign investments (due to IT and industrial developments), cosmopolitan hubs and improvement in connectivity across the city through extended transport services. Some of the Government's proposed infrastructure, namely - the Peripheral Ring Road (PRR), metro rail, signal-free Outer Ring Road, high-speed rail link, monorail and elevated expressway are factors influencing real estate growth and capital appreciation potential in Bengaluru.

Scomi withholds codes, stalls monorail 15.7.2017 DNA: Top News
After failing to enlist Malaysian firm Scomi Engineering to fix technical faults in India's only monorail system, now the Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA) is struggling to transfer the public transport system to the next private operator without any hiccups. The authority had invited bids for a new operator in January, but has scrapped the bids saying fresh bids would be floated soon. Sources, however, say that MMRDA was forced to scrap the bids after current operator Scomi Engineer refused to share passwords and codes of the functioning system. Scomi Engineering holds the patent for the design and certain technology of the Monorail train. "Scomi Engineer has concerns about trip revenue sharing for the new bids and handing over the passwords and codes for the Monorail system," said a source. "This is proving to be a hurdle in the bidding for the next operator." At the time of going to press, Scomi Engineering did not respond e-mail inquiries sent by DNA. Presently, MMRDA pays Rs ...
