HC to hear appeal on Mumbai Metro rail fares on 7 July

Mumbai Metropolitan Regional Development Authority has challenged in the Bombay HC an order of its single-judge bench holding that state govt agency had no right to decide the fare of the Mumbai Metro rail which connects Versova in the west to Ghatkopar in the east.

The appeal filed by MMRDA, a state agency, is likely to come up for hearing on 7 July. On 24 June, Justice RD Dhanuka had rejected MMRDA’s petition challenging the Metro fares. MMRDA had pleaded that a minimum fare of Rs 9 and maximum of Rs 13 should be charged for the rail corridor, while the operator, Mumbai Metro One Private Ltd, announced higher fares ranging between Rs 10 to Rs 40.
