Mumbai: The MMRDA (Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority) is planning to form an agency to operate and maintain all upcoming metro corridors in the city.

“We have planned to create our own agency to operate and maintain the new metro corridors. The study for the same has already begun,” said R.A. Rajeev, metropolitan commissioner, MMRDA.

More Information:

  • The agency will be formed by next year till the operations of metro 2A (Dahisar to D.N. Nagar) begin, he said.
  • Towards this, officials from MMRDA will travel to Hong Kong and Singapore to study their operations system.
  • While Hong Kong has MTR (Mass Transit Rail), Singapore has SMRT corporation, a multi-modal transport system operator.
  • Currently, the Versova-Andheri-Ghatkopar (line-1) corridor is operated by the MMOPL (Mumbai Metro One Private Ltd).
  • MMOPL is a JV (Joint Venture) SPV (Special Purpose Vehicle) between Reliance Infra and MMRDA with Reliance Infra owning 75% stake.
  • The Delhi Metro has its own agency named the DMRC (Delhi Metro Rail Corporation), which looks after the Operations & Maintenance of all metro corridors.

Fare-
