DNA EXCLUSIVE: Monorail co L&T-Scomi may lose Rs 250 cr guarantees 7.12.2017 DNA: Wide Angle
The joint venture between Larsen & Toubro (L&T) and Scomi Engineering that runs monorail trains in Mumbai is staring at the prospect of losing its entire bank guarantee of Rs 250 crore if the Malaysian firm fails to pay mounting penalties, including that for the loss of monorail rakes in a fire a month ago. The bank guarantee may be encashed by the Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA) if Scomi, which faces financial stress currently, is unable to pay penalties. The fact that Malaysian firm Scomi is in financial distress has not only affected its operations and maintenance of India’s only monorail in Mumbai, but led to delay in delivery of remaining five monorail trains. Senior MMRDA officials alleged that the woes faced by the monorail project are due to the Malaysian’s firm’s incapability. This, many believe, may strain relations between the two partners. L&T, being the lead partner, may have to shell out the penalty for its joint venture partner if there’s any payment default. Else, ...

MMRDA plans to rent out space on monorail piers 25.9.2017 DNA: Money
Even as the Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA) is yet to make the second phase of the monorail between Wadala and Jacob Circle operational, it has now figured that it can at least make some revenue by renting out the space on its piers (pillars) to advertisers. Since construction began in 2008, the pillars for the second phase have been ready for over five years now. "It would be too early to say how much revenue would be generated from the renting of space on the pillars, but the revenue generated from this would be utilised for infrastructure projects in the Mumbai Metropolitan Region," said Dilip Kawathkar, spokesperson, MMRDA. The second phase is expected to be made operational in December and the MMRDA is going to approach the Commissioner of Railway Safety (CRS) next month to start conducting the trial runs. However, this similar attempt of leasing out space for advertisements — last time inside the coaches — did not yield any fruit, as phase one has been beleaguered by low ...
