Indian Railways unit in talks with Mumbai authority to run India's first monorail
Ever since Monorail was made operational in 2014, frequent breakdowns and technical glitches have troubled MMRDA, and it has been in search of a new operator for Mumbai Monorail for more than a year now. Sanjay Khandare, Additional Metropolitan Commissioner, MMRDA confirmed that it has written to MRVC for operating and maintaining monorail.
The MMRDA had made the first phase of Monorail between Chembur and Wadala operational in 2014 but that has remained shut since more than six months now after a fire incident in November 2017. Image source: DNA India
