MMRDA seeks contribution from MIAL to fund Metro extension to T2

The Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA) has asked Mumbai International Airport Ltd (MIAL) to share the cost for the construction of an underground metro corridor. The Metro line is an extension of the under-construction Dahisar (East)- Andheri (East) corridor of Metro-7, up to the international airport terminal T2.

The airport operator, in the past, contributed funds for the Colaba-Bandra-Seepz (Metro-3) line and has increased the levy of development charge in lieu of partly funding the Metro.
