MUMBAI: Reliance Infrastructure-led Mumbai Metro One Pvt Ltd (MMOPL) on Monday offered to bring down the rates of Mumbai Metro from its fare structure of Rs 10-40 to Rs 10-20 till July 31. The statement about the discounted fare was made before the Bombay high court which was hearing a petition filed by MMRDA challenging a single judge's order rejecting its plea for a stay on the rates fixed for MMOPL.

A division bench headed by chief justice Mohit Shah directed MMRDA to add the Central government and state urban development department as parties in the petition. The court has scheduled the case for further hearing on July 24.

The promotional fares of Rs 10 for Mumbai metro were set to expire on July 8, following which Mumbai Metro passengers would have had to pay between Rs 10 and Rs 40 on the Versova-Andheri-Ghatkopar route. The high court was informed that the fare fixation committee would require three months to take a decision on the fares.

A press release issued by MMOPL said that as per the new discounted slab a commuter would have to pay mere Rs 20 to travel between Versova and Ghatkopar by using the token and Rs 15 if he uses Smart card. A flat week-end fare of Rs 5 will be applicable to children to commute between any two stations, said MMOPL.

Last month, the high court had rejected MMRDA's plea for a stay on the fare hike. the court had kept the issue of whether the fare was reasonable open, and had directed the Centre to constitute the fare fixation committee. The court said the committee could change the fares if required after adjusting the fare recovered until then, including the period of the promotional fares.

MMOPL had fixed the initial tariff range at Rs10-40 for the Versova-Andheri-Ghatkopar route, which was inaugurated on June 11 after a prolonged delay and considerable cost escalation. But MMRDA took RInfra to the high court insisting that the Metro fares should be as per the concession agreement that set it between Rs 9 and Rs 13.
