GURUGRAM: MCG has asked Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) not to use metro properties in the city, like stations, pillars, foot overbridges and others, to put up advertisements. In a notice issued to DMRC, the MCG joint commissioner (IV) has directed the metro corporation to comply with provisions of Haryana Municipal Corporation Advertisement Bylaws 2016 and a later amendment.

In its report ‘Rapid Metro warns ad curbs will kill expansion plans’ published on March 15, TOI had mentioned the recently formulated advertising bylaws have raised the hackles of both Rapid Metro and DMRC authorities, who have expressed fear they might have to shelve their expansion plans in Gurugram and elsewhere in the state as a result.

In it’s notice, MCG has said in future, locations of OMD will have to be identified with MCG approval. The only OMD permitted shall follow specifications stated in the bylaws, and will have to get audited by a third party road safety consultant who is not involved in the business of display advertisement. MCG directed DMRC to comply with the provisions and its orders within a week, and threatened to take action under the Haryana Municipal Corporation Act 1994 otherwise.

“Local bodies are promoting metro services all over the country, but for reasons best known to the Haryana ULB department, it has formulated advertising bylaws that will sound the death knell to metro services in the state. This will also affect upcoming MRTS (mass rapid transit system) and metro networks planned by HSIIDC/MCG. Nowhere in India barring Haryana is there a prohibition on advertisements on metro pillars/median. The world over, metro services compensate low fares with non-fare revenue,” reads the letter dated March 12.

Sources said DMRC, whose Yellow Line has five stations within Gurugram, had filed objections to the new bylaws, but with ULB officials did not share any details. In particular, Rapid Metro will be affected, because its ridership figures have so far been below expectations.

डीएमआरसी के एग्जिक्युटिव डायरेक्टर अनुज दयाल ने बताया कि सीएमआरएस 8 से 10 मई तक जनकपुरी वेस्ट से कालकाजी मंदिर के बीच बने 25.6 किमी लंबे नए मेट्रो सेक्शन का सेफ्टी इंस्पेक्शन करेंगे। इस सेक्शन पर कुल 16 नए मेट्रो स्टेशन बने हैं, जिनमें से दो स्टेशनों हौज खास और जनकपुरी वेस्ट पर यात्रियों को इंटरचेंज की सुविधा भी मिलेगी।

इस लाइन पर कालकाजी मंदिर से बॉटैनिकल गार्डन के बीच पहले से ही मेट्रो सर्विस शुरू हो चुकी है। बाकी का सेक्शन भी उसी तकनीक पर आधारित है, ऐसे में माना यही जा रहा है कि सीएमआरएस की तरफ से इस बार ग्रीन सिग्नल जल्दी मिल जाएगा और अगर ऐसा होता है, तो फिर इस महीने के मध्य तक या ज्यादा से ज्यादा महीने के अंत तक यह सेक्शन भी पैसेंजर सर्विस के लिए खुल जाएगा।

इस सेक्शन के खुलने के बाद जनकपुरी वेस्ट से बॉटैनिकल गार्डन के बीच बनाई गई 38.235 किमी लंबी नई मजेंटा लाइन पूरी की पूरी खुल जाएगी और यह फेज-3 की पहली ऐसी नई लाइन भी बन जाएगी, जिस पर पैसेंजर सर्विस फुल कपैसिटी के साथ शुरू की जा सकेगी। कालकाजी मंदिर से बॉटैनिकल गार्डन के बीच इस लाइन के 12.64 किमी लंबे हिस्से को पिछले साल 25 दिसंबर को ही पैसेंजर्स के लिए खोल दिया गया था। इसके बाद से लोगों को इस लाइन के जनकपुरी वेस्ट से कालकाजी मंदिर तक के बाकी बचे हुए हिस्से के खुलने का इंतजार था।

According to a PVVNL official, 10,000 Kva power was supplied to the DMRC for Metro rail commuting and operational purposes in Noida after which the DMRC has provided 515 Kva power supply to the 11 shops operating at Botanical Garden Metro station which is unauthorised.

"In 2009, the DMRC had taken up power supply from us for traction and later gave a tender to a private firm RQ Power Industries Private Limited to provide electricity to the shops in the complex at a higher tariff. Till date, they have not paid a single penny for the electricity duty to the PVVNL," said Anil Kumar, superintendent engineer of PVVNL.

"After assessment of the DMRC, it was found that the amount at which PVVNL provides the electricity is much lower to what the DMRC is taking from the shops which is a serious offence in itself. Hence, an electricity duty penalty assessment amounting to Rs 10.12 crore was charged to DMRC," said Kumar.

"Following the complaint given by PVVNL, we have registered an FIR under Section 135(1) ( Theft of Energy) of Electricity Act, 2003 against Vivek Agarwal (GM Of electricity department in DMRC), Sandeep ( a station supervisor), Sujeet (Gm of RQ company) and Mahipal ( a local supervisor). We are investigating the case," said a senior police officer.
