Hello Mr. Malhotra
Are you the same Malhotra who was a chairman of Railway Board ?
If so do you even know elementary mathematics ?
The Times of India says "Metro fares in the capital will rise between
25% and 67% from Wednesday". But Mr, Roy has proved to you (a Rs. 12
fare becoming Rs. 30) that fares actually rose by 250% and 300% in
some other pairs of stations...
So the news story is incorrect.
What FFC has done is kept the lowest increase in the lowest and
highest fares but pushed up all the other fares to much higher sides
These are the typical bania methods to deceive consumers, so don't
believe what is written in these bania owned papers
I believe Mr. Roy when he says that his fare has gone up by 250%, can
you disprove it?
The points you are raising about Chinese contractor getting awards in
DAMPLE shows what little you know of matter. The dispute in
arbitration was between Anil Ambani group and DMRC. The line had to be
shut down for 7 months and then 3 months so all the defective civil
works, and beam bearings from Chinese contractors selected by
Sreedharan's DMRC were replaced at heavy cost to DMRC. Despite that
DMRC had to further pay around 3,000 crores to Anil Ambani group after
DMRC lost in international arbitration. Role of Sreedharan in awarding
Anil Ambani group for DAMPLE as lollipoop for losing lucrative Delhi
Airport bid to GMR is open secret.
