MUMBAI ( Metro Rail News): On Friday, the Mumbai Metro Rail Corporation (MMRC) announced that the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) has been selected to operate Mumbai’s inaugural underground metro link.

The 10-year contract for Mumbai Metro’s Line 3, stretching from Colaba to SEEPZ, was awarded to DMRC following an internationally competitive bidding process, where they emerged as the lowest successful bidder.

Under the terms of the agreement, the DMRC will assume the responsibility for day-to-day operations of the line, including train services, maintenance of trains and metro systems infrastructure, and ensuring the safety of passengers.

In a press release, Ashwini Bhide, the managing director of the Mumbai Metro Rail Corporation, said, “We are pleased to work with DMRC, one of the top Metro operating firms, to operate and maintain Mumbai’s first underground Metro line. For any metro, operation and maintenance are essential elements.

While the DMRC handles the operational aspects, the MMRC, responsible for constructing the underground line, will oversee revenue management, legal compliances, and non-fare-box revenue generation. This collaborative approach ensures a comprehensive and well-balanced framework for the successful functioning of Mumbai’s new metro system.

The Line 3 project is an ambitious undertaking, spanning approximately 33.5 km and estimated to cost nearly Rs 37,000 crore. The construction of the first phase, connecting Bandra Kurla Complex to SEEPZ, is nearing completion, and it is anticipated to be open to the public by December.

In conclusion, the selection of DMRC as the operator for Mumbai’s first underground metro link marks a significant milestone in developing the city’s transportation infrastructure.
