NEW DELHI (Metro Rail News): The Transport Minister of the Delhi government, Kailash Gahlot, on Monday, speaking at a press conference said, the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) should appoint the government nominees as directors to the DMRC board.

He also urged the DMRC to refrain from taking any of the major decisions without representation of the state dispensation. He also added that the DMRC board has taken many crucial decisions and passed them without any consultation with the Delhi government. 

“In DMRC, the Delhi government holds a 50% share and an equal share of the number of directors. Hence, DMRC should stop taking decisions without representation of the Delhi government. Seeking legal opinions on the government’s recommendations without deciding on the board meeting is also illegal. I am writing to the Managing Director of DMRC Mangu Singh to expedite the decision and appoint the government nominees to its board,” he added. 

Last week, the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) told the National Green Tribunal Thursday that construction of a commercial complex above Bhikaji Cama Place station was conceptualized in 2012. This came after a plea challenging the structure was filed in NGT.

DMRC told a bench headed by NGT Chairperson Justice Adarsh Kumar Goel that 13,332 square meter space was allotted by Land and Development Office on a permanent basis for the metro station ancillary structures and proposed property development against payment of Rs 15.65 crore. 

Bhikaji Cama Place Metro station is strategically designed on the intersection of the ring road and Africa Avenue Road so that significant motorized traffic can be taken off the road, it said.
