MMRDA spent Rs1.46 crore as legal fees to oppose fare hike of Mumbai Metro

MMRDA has filed several cases in the courts opposing the unilateral fare hike by Mumbai Metro One and paid about Rs1.46 crore in legal expenses, reveals a RTI

 

The Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA) has spent almost Rs1.46 crore as legal fees to oppose the fare hike of Mumbai Metro One, reveals a reply received under Right to Information (RTI) Act.
 
According to reply received by RTI activist Anil Galgali, the Authority, opposing unilateral fare hike by Reliance Infrastructure-led Mumbai Metro One Pvt Ltd (MMOPL), retained services of Khaitan & Co and paid Rs1.45 crore, as legal fees including expenses. In addition, MMRDA also incurred Rs1 lakh expenses on officials, including Additional Chief K Vijayalakshmi, Joint Project Director Yogita Paralkar and Superintending Engineer MC Devrao, who were present during Court trials.
 
"However, despite spending so much amount, the MMRDA has failed to get any respite," says Galgali. "Unless and until a modification is enacted in the Metro Act, the MMRDA will have no control on the fares of Mumbai Metro One, for which the Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis should put in his best efforts to properly present its case with the Central Government," he added.
