Fresh FFC if Delhi Govt gives over Rs 3,000 cr per year to DMRC: Centre to Kejriwal

Fresh FFC if Delhi Govt gives over Rs 3,000 cr per year to DMRC: Centre to Kejriwal

New Delhi, Oct 7 (UNI) The Centre has informed Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal that the Metro Act does not allow it to put on hold the proposed hike in Delhi Metro fares, however, setting up a fresh Fare Fixation Committee could be considered if the Delhi Government agrees to give over Rs 3,000 crore every year to Delhi Metro Rail Corporation. 'However, setting up a fresh Fare Fixation Committee (FFC) could be considered if the Delhi Government agrees to give over Rs 3,000 crore every year to Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC),' Minister of Housing and Urban Affairs Hardeep Singh Puri said in a letter to Mr Kejriwal. Mr Puri sent a detailed response in the letter on Friday to Mr Kejriwal in response to the latter’s letter dated September 29. Mr Kejriwal in his letter desired the Central government to give direction to DMRC to put on hold the proposed hike in fares to be effective from the tenth of this month, as recommended by the Fourth Fare Fixation Committee. Mr Puri responded to the Delhi Chief Minister after detailed examination of the issues raised and suggestions made by Mr Kejriwal regarding the fare hike in consultations with the DMRC. The DMRC during the discussions and in their written response to the Ministry asserted that “The Committee’s (FFC) recommendations are binding on the Metro Rail Administrations as per provisions of Section-37 of this Act (Metro Act). Neither the Centre nor the state government or even the Board of the Company has legal power to change the recommendations made by the FFC.' Mr Puri annexed DMRC’s written response in the matter of fare hike to his letter to the Delhi Chief Minister. DMRC is run as per the provisions of the Metro Railways (Operations and Maintenance) Act, 2002. More UNI NY AE 1637
