Monorail arbitration documents has no relation to public interest: MMRDA in RTI reply 16.8.2018 DNA: Money
After spending around Rs 3,000 crore of public money on India's first Monorail between Chembur and Jacob Circle, the Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA) in a Right To Information (RTI) reply to DNA said that allowing inspection of documents under RTI application relating to the legal dispute (arbitration) of Monorail has no relation to public interest or public activity, and will cause unwarranted invasion of privacy. The documents of arbitration are over the construction cost of Monorail for which the MMRDA is in dispute with Larsen & Toubro (L&T) and Malaysian based Scomi Engineering (LTSE) who have constructed the Monorail and are also involved in the operations of Monorail that is shut since November 2017 owing to the fire incident. However, Shantanu Wagh, Transport Engineer of MMRDA has quoted exemption under Section 8 1 (J) under the RTI Act for denying to allow inspection of arbitration documents of Monorail.

Maharashtra Government proposes 1% stamp duty hike to fund transport projects 24.7.2018 DNA: Opinion
If the government's latest proposal passes, Mumbaikars will have to brace themselves to pony up additional one per cent stamp duty on sale, gift and mortgage of immovable property. The state urban development department has moved a bill to amend the Mumbai Municipal Corporation Act that will levy a surcharge by way of stamp duty in Greater Mumbai. It aims to use the revenue generated to finance urban transport projects, including Metro, monorail, bus rapid transport system, freeways and sealink, which entail investment of more than Rs 1.06 lakh crore. However, the realty industry has warned that it will severely impact the sentiments of buyers and affect the already-down property transactions. A state law & judiciary department officer told DNA,'' The bill has been moved by the urban development department on July 19, but could not be taken up for discussion during the Monsoon Session of the state legislature, which concluded last week. However, the government may issue an ordinance or table the bill ...

Mumbai Monorail to chug, but at a higher cost 20.7.2018 DNA: Money
The agreement reached between Larsen & Toubro-Scomi Engineering (LTSE) consortium and Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA) on Mumbai Monorail project has come at a cost. MMRDA has agreed to pay a higher per-trip cost to LTSE to run the services from October and negotiations are on for the final figure, according to sources. For a few years now, LTSE has been arguing that the per trip rate of Rs 3,131 is economically unviable to continue with operations & maintenance (O&M) of the monorail system. Earlier this year, it submitted a proposal to continue with its services by charging Rs 18,000 per trip (entire 19.5-km). This LTSE price is more than the per-trip quotation submitted in the O&M bid by IL&FS Rail, which emerged as the lowest bidder in April 2018. However, a final per-trip price is yet to be agreed upon between LTSE and MMRDA to re-rail Mumbai Monorail services. An observer told DNA Money that MMRDA by agreeing to continue with LTSE at a higher per-trip price is only weakening ...

Mumbai Monorail may hit track again in few months 17.7.2018 DNA: Urban Tales
The Chembur-Wadala Monorail services that were shut last year are expected to resume by the year end, DNA has learnt. The transit network may provide Mumbaikars another option to commute, but is unlikely to cheer many as its much-awaited second phase – Wadala to Mahalaxmi – will continue to remain work in progress. Of the 10 trains procured by the Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA) so far, only four to five rakes were in use till the entire operation was stopped following a fire in November 2017. Shortage of trains and spare parts is the biggest stumbling block for MMRDA to expand the route, said officials. Chembur resident Monish Makhija, who changes trains to reach his workplace in Lower Parel, said he has been waiting years for the second phase of Monorail as the elevated mode of transport doesn't get affected by flooding during monsoon. "Mere starting of Phase 1 won't help me as I will still have to change trains." Ever since its introduction in 2014, the first in the country, ...

The National Rail Museum has decided to keep its doors open till 9 PM from next month in a bid to increase footfalls at the country's premier custodian of railway heritage, senior officials of the museum said today. The move is in line with the views of Tourism Minister K J Alphons, who has been advocating that places of tourist interest should remain open post evening. "We are still working out the details.
