with just a year to go to elections, seems this government is sure of not winning em thus theyve been just giving plans and no execution !

Mumbai Metro to get Rs 650 cr in central aid

Quote:
The first phase of the Mumbai Metro may now be put on the fast track with the Centre planning to pitch in with Rs 650 crore as extra budgetary support to part finance the project between Versova and Ghatkopar. The 12.5-km corridor is part of the three-phase Metro project being developed by a consortium led by ADAG company Reliance Infrastructure (erstwhile Reliance Energy). The entire project covers 146 km and comprises nine corridors crisscrossing Mumbai.
The finance ministry has decided to release the fund as extra-budgetary support as the project did not qualify for viability gap funding, which the Centre provides for infrastructure projects. The move comes two years after the prime minister laid the foundation stone for the project.
The project had faced major problems owing to the funding pattern of the project. The project first hit a stumbling block after the finance ministry refused to pay 20% of the cost through VGF on the ground that the consortium had applied for VGF after completing the bidding process. To tide over the problem of VGF funding, the government mulled financing the project through Jawaharlal Nehru National Urban Renewal Mission, to which the urban development ministry had serious objections.
Viability gap funding means a one-time or deferred grant for infrastructure projects that may have long gestation periods and limited financial returns, so that their viability may be improved through government support.
“Now that we have come to the conclusion that the project cannot be funded through either of the schemes, the government has decided to fund the project through extrabudgetary resource. This proposal has now been approved by the expenditure finance commission,” a senior government official told ET.
The Rs 2,350 crore Mumbai metro project called ‘Mumbai Metro One’ is the first Metro project in country to be executed under the public-private partnership. By 2011, the government expects, the first privateowned train will roll down the tracks of Mumbai.
The state Cabinet has already approved Mumbai Metro’s fare structure. For a distance of 3 km the charge would be Rs 6. For a distance between 3 and 8 km the charge would Rs 8 and for distances beyond 8 km the charge would be Rs 10. After the first three years of operation the fare would be increased by 11%. The 13.5 km route would be covered in 21 minutes and there would 12 stations enroute.

Midday: MMRDA unsure of plot size

MMRDA doesn’t know size of plot it’s fighting over for 2 yrs!

Quote:
Two years and a court case later, the MMRDA is still unclear about the size of the Versova plot allotted for the metro rail’s casting yard. The legal tangle over the plot between the MMRDA and state government and the private developer owning the land is one of the main reasons for the delay in the Versova-Andheri-Ghatkopar metro rail.

The MMRDA and state government has now asked the city survey department to measure the plot, which is recorded as 13 hectares in MMRDA’s books. Mumbai Metro One Pvt Ltd (MMOPL, the company handling the project) had, however, been told that the area was 11.8 hectares.

When asked why this survey was being conducted at a time when the MMRDA should already know such vital details, Metropolitan Commissioner Ratnakar Gaikwad said, “We just wanted to reconfirm the size. The report will be completed within eight days.”

K P Maheshwari, director, MMOPL, echoed Gaikwad.

Sources close to the project say the land will soon be handed over to Mumbai Metro One, enabling them to go ahead with the project in a full-fledged manner.

MMRC set up to develop eight metro rail corridors in Mumbai

Source: EconomicTimes

Quote:
The Maharashtra government has set up the Mumbai Metro Rail Corporation (MMRC), a separate body that would develop eight metro rail corridors in Mumbai.

"The Mumbai Metro Rail Corporation has been incorporated and we will now go ahead with the employing of staff over the next two months," Metropolitan Commissioner Ratnakar Gaikwad said today.

The Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA) and state government had pushed for the creation of the MMRC which has been set up in a month's time, Gaikwad said.

The office will be located in the same building as that of MMRDA and Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) in suburban Bandra, official consultants to the Metro Rail Project, in order to facilitate better co-ordination.

The Principal Secretary for Urban Development T C Benjamin, Joint Metropolitan Commissioner Milind Mhaiskar and Gaikwad are the board members of the MMRC and the organisation will be looking to hire its Managing Director soon.

The first corridor of the Mumbai Metro Rail Project between western suburb Versova and eastern Ghatkopar is presently under construction.

The 11.07-km-long corridor, estimated to cost over Rs 2,300 crore, is being developed by the Mumbai Metro One Ltd, a Special Purpose Vehicle formed by the consortium led by the Anil Dhirubhai Ambani Group.

The MMRC which has been developed on the model of its Delhi counterpart is expected to raise capital through various sources, including the sale of land with additional Floor Space Index, sources said.

Metro in Mumbai is far too complicated as parties like shiv sena and people like Raj thackeray are pain the ass and thorn in rapid development.The only thing he is good at is dividing the country for his own benifits.

Mumbai metro autority should learn from Delhi Metro authority the way to complete project at least on time if not before.They need to change their working model as well as recommended by E Sreedharan one of the the most honoured and respectable man this country has ever seen.

Mumbai metro may be first private project to get JNNURM grant
More here

Quote:
The government is considering awarding a grant from the funds of the Jawaharlal Nehru National Urban Renewal Mission (JNNURM) to meet a funding gap in the Mumbai metro project's first corridor that is being built by the Reliance Anil Dhirubhai Ambani Group (ADAG).

If the decision is approved, the Mumbai metro will be the first project involving private participation to receive a JNNURM grant.

State to go alone in Metro

Quote:
THE Maharashtra government has decided to do away with the public-private partnership (PPP) model for developing the eight corridors of the Mumbai Metro rail project. The move is a setback to infrastructure companies hoping to cash in on the Mumbai makeover programme.
The Rs 22,000-crore Mumbai Metro project, to be completed by 2022, has nine corridors spanning track length of 146.5 km in three phases. The first corridor linking Versova-Andheri-Ghatkopar is being implemented by a consortium led by REL.
Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority commissioner Ratnakar Gaikwad told ET that the state has approved a proposal to form Mumbai Metro Rail Corporation (MMRC), a government undertaking on the lines of Delhi Metro Rail Corporation, to plan, execute, and run the remaining corridors. MMRDA is the nodal agency for the metro project. “The MMRC will be headed by a managing director like the DMRC, which is the main consultant for the Metro project. The new agency will take shape soon and function from the MMRDA premises at Bandra,” Mr Gaikwad said.
Mantralaya sources said the formation of MMRC was a big spoiler for the private sector. “The move to reject the PPP model puts paid to the plans of REL and RIL to bid for the project. Of all the companies who have put in their bids for the next Metro corridors, the two consortia led by REL and RIL are the most serious contenders,” a senior bureaucrat said.
The Rs 2,356-crore, 11-km-long first corridor linking Versova-Andheri-Ghatkopar is being implemented by a consortium led by REL, MMRDA and Veolia Transport of France. While REL holds 69%, MMRDA has 26% in the consortium. Sources in the know said some major considerations had forced the state to prefer a 100% stateowned entity to implement the project which is central to the Vilasrao Deshmukh government’s Rs 40,000-crore Mumbai makeover programme. “The PPP option is feasible when the total capital investment is not very high. But the cost of second and third corridor of Metro runs into thousands of crore and there is little scope to get viability gap funding from the Centre,” an MMRDA official said. The Centre has not so far cleared VGF request for Rs 650 crore for the first corridor.
The 32 km-long Charkop-Bandra-Mankhurd corridor is estimated to cost Rs 6192 crore and the cost of 13.37-km long Colaba-Bandra-Mankhurd corridor is even higher at Rs 12,000 crore.

finally after a long time an image related to the metro construction has been published -



Work on the Versova-Andheri-Ghatkopar phase of the Mumbai Metro has begun along the arterial Jayprakash Road in Andheri (W). Holding out the promise of a better tomorrow, asphalt patches have been dug up at Bhavan’s College, Four Bungalows and Seven Bungalows

DNA: Lalu’s elevated idea may come crashing down

Lalu’s elevated idea may come crashing down

Quote:
If railway officials are to be believed, Mumbaikars will have to continue to battle for space in overcrowded trains for some more time.

Railway minister Lalu Prasad Yadav’s grand proposal of constructing an elevated corridor above the railway tracks for air-conditioned train services between Mumbai Central and Virar has hit far too many roadblocks.

Railway officials claimed that the elevated corridor will be an engineering challenge considering that there is no space on the existing rail corridor to erect pillars. Also, it will have to be built over the foot-over-bridges and road-over-bridges en route Mumbai Central and Virar.
