"If the Central government agrees, Delhi government would be willing to take over the DMRC", he said. In fact, he went to the extent of saying that his government would not mind taking over DMRC to make it even more efficient and indicated he would provide half the funds to bridge the gap in finances for 3 months.
The DMRC was formed in 1995 with equal equity participation of the Central government and the government of NCT of Delhi. "Let an assessment be made of the financial gap likely to be created on account of the postponement of the second fare hike, and we will be able to bear half of it", wrote Mr. Kerjiwal. "Thereafter, an FFC (Fare Fixation Committee) can be constituted, as suggested by you".
The Delhi State Government has been asking DMRC to hold the second phase of fare hike - which will come into effect from October 10 while the Central Government is stating that fare hike can not be kept on hold.
He hoped that the spirit of partnership would continue to prevail and a mutually acceptable solution would be found. He also noted that the alternative to fare hike was to provide DMRC yearly grants-in-aid for the next five years: Rs 3,040 crore, Rs 3,616 crore, Rs 3,318 crore, Rs 3,150 crore and Rs 2,980 crore respectively. In his response, the Union minister said it was "legally untenable" to place the fare hike on hold because the FFC's recommendations were binding under the Delhi Metro Act.
Puri also said that the new Metro Rail Policy "in respect of 50:50 joint venture metro projects as is the case of DMRC, does not envisage metro operations either by the state or central governments".
The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) government is against the fare hike. When DMRC board meeting was convened in the past, representatives of Delhi government sought time stating that they were yet to study the recommendations of FFC.
Managing Director Mangu Singh that the government would take action against him if he goes ahead with the proposed Metro fare hike. For all other distance zones, fares will be increased by Rs 10, with the maximum fare for journeys longer than 32kms going up from Rs 50 to Rs 60. For the subsequent slabs, it will go up by Rs10 each, which means the maximum fare will be Rs60.
