The idea of Mumbai Metro 3 CarShed at Kanjurmarg proposed by Hon CM Uddhav Thackerayji by integrating line 3 & line 6 is already rejected by the expert Committee set up by Hon CM himself!
Here’s how Aarey land was the only feasible option to complete the Mumbai Metro project in time, at a reasonable cost & how the environmental impact mitigation made it sustainable.
𝐈 𝐚𝐦 𝐩𝐫𝐞𝐬𝐞𝐧𝐭𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐌𝐕𝐀 𝐆𝐨𝐯𝐞𝐫𝐧𝐦𝐞𝐧𝐭’𝐬 𝐯𝐞𝐫𝐲 𝐨𝐰𝐧 𝐝𝐨𝐜𝐮𝐦𝐞𝐧𝐭𝐬.
Attached is the ToR (Terms of Reference) wise findings of ACS Manoj Saunik led Committee, appointed by the present MVA Government.
Aarey CarShed was planned as green facility with factors like reducing carbon footprints, solar panels, waste water treatment & recycling, LED lighting to reduce energy consumption. (Document attached is from the report of MVA Government Committee).
This is how the further delays will lead to more increase in carbon emission and why Aarey site is environmentally more beneficial than impact caused by felling of trees.
Our earlier Government in 2015 considered the Kanjurmarg option but due to delays & multiple litigations it was finally decided to give up.
The attached references from MVA Government committee makes the point even more clearer.
What we get to know from the site inspection report by Resident Deputy Collector - RDC (Additional Charge), Mumbai, dated 17th January 2020 about Kanjurmarg land, is that it was still under litigation.(Document attached).

If Kanjurmarg land selected,complications like need for significant changes in MetroLine6 need to be understood.Ongoing works need to be suspended immediately,right from review to redesign to reconstruction need to be done.Moreover,question on possible operationalisation remains!
Worst suffering for Mumbaikars will be that Metro which was scheduled to be commissioned in December2021,will be delayed by 4.5long years!
Additionally,looking at present conditions of Kanjurmarg land,ground improvements&filling works need 2years,that too after award of contract
Huge changes will be required in tenders & contracts and just imagine the cascading impact from the list given below...

Shifting of depot at Kanjurmarg would not fully address the requirements of line 3 and it will hamper the frequency of operations of both, line 3 & line 6.

Running a mixed stock of trains on the Aarey to Kanjurmarg portion of line 6 is bound to lead to operational complexities on line 6 and would also hamper line 3.
This will affect operational efficiency of both the lines and cause operational losses too.

𝐇𝐮𝐠𝐞 𝐛𝐮𝐫𝐝𝐞𝐧 𝐨𝐧 𝐆𝐨𝐌 𝐝𝐮𝐞 𝐭𝐨 𝐜𝐨𝐬𝐭 𝐞𝐬𝐜𝐚𝐥𝐚𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧❗️
All cost escalations due to delays, change of scope & relating to time cycle are to be entirely borne by GoM as per the tripartite MoU.

Here is the chart showing overall assessment of the losses to the economy due to long delays (by Committee appointed by MVA Government).

Even the letter by Mumbai Collector dated 1st October 2020, of handing over of Kanjurmarg land, mentions that all cost arising from pending litigations shall be borne by MMRDA.

Finally, I say that...
I respect all the environmental activists and want to emphasise that CarShed at Aarey was decided when there was no choice left.
But now, how would these activists justify CarShed at a salt pan land with mangroves & that too on a reserved forest❓

Because 76% tunnelling work for the project is already done but no car depot for next 4 to 5 years will be an endgame for financial feasibility of the project.
Needless to say all cost escalations will be borne from passengers’ pocket through tickets.

मेट्रो 3 आणि मेट्रो 6 या दोन मार्गिकांना एकात्मिक करून कांजुरमार्ग येथे कारशेड प्रस्तावित करण्याची मुख्यमंत्री मा. उद्धव ठाकरेजी यांची संकल्पना त्यांनीच स्थापन केलेल्या तज्ञ समितीने यापूर्वीच नाकारली आहे. @OfficeofUT #MVAbetrayMumbaikars
मुंबईकरांचा धडधडीत विश्वासघात!
मेट्रो प्रकल्प वेळेत पूर्ण करण्यासाठी आरेची जागा हा एकमात्र व्यवहार्य पर्याय होता. आर्थिकदृष्ट्या सुद्धा तो किफायतशीर होता आणि पर्यावरणीय परिणाम कमीत कमी होईल, हा विचार केल्याने तो अधिक शाश्वत पर्याय सुद्धा होता. #MVAbetrayMumbaikars

Unfortunate decision to shift Metro CarShed from Aarey to Kanjurmarg and that too just to satisfy ego❗️
This decision will increase the cost of the project by at least ₹4000 crore and this cost escalation is assessed by the committee appointed by this Government.
Why such a huge burden just to satisfy someone’s ego? Whom does government want to suffer and for what?
The Kanjurmarg site was earlier considered by the Government. But it was under litigation and stayed by Hon HC.
Some private individuals claimed their rights. The stay was requested to be withdrawn.
But Hon HC wanted the amount to be deposited if the claims got settled in future.

आरे येथील मेट्रो कारशेड कांजूरमार्ग येथे हलविण्याचा दुर्दैवी निर्णय हा केवळ अहंकारातून!
कांजूरमार्गला मेट्रो कारशेड नेल्यास 4000 कोटी रुपयांचा अतिरिक्त भुर्दंड सोसावा लागेल, असे याच सरकारने स्थापन केलेल्या समितीने सांगितले.
हा भुर्दंड राज्य सरकार आपल्या अहंकारासाठी कुणाच्या माथी मारू इच्छिते? आणि कशासाठी?
कांजूरमार्गच्या जागेचा यापूर्वी सरकारने विचार केला. पण त्यावर मा. उच्च न्यायालयाची स्थगिती होती. काही खाजगी व्यक्तींनी त्या जागेवर दावा सांगितला. स्थगिती मागे घ्यावी, म्हणून विनंती करण्यात आली, तर न्यायालयाने दावे पुढील काळात निकाली निघाले, तर त्यासाठीची रक्कम भरण्यास सांगितले.

It is really very strange that why Maharashtra Government is coming under unnecessary suspicion by not allowing Bihar Police to perform their duties.

The movement of officers doing official public service can’t be stopped by putting them in quarantine in these testing times of #COVID19 pandemic.

A medical team from Kerala visited Mumbai, UP Police came to investigate Vikas Dubey case, a team from Bihar police is already working in Mumbai since 4 days but none of them were quarantined then why only an SP rank officer is treated differently?

It was relieving to see yesterday’s COVID numbers in Mumbai coming down to806until I realised that only3300samples were tested.@OfficeofUT are we playing with lives of Mumbaikars?On a given day our patients are806&64deaths which takes the death rate to around 8%&infection rate25%
And same is the case with State numbers!
After 7074 positive patients on 4th July & 6555 positive patients on 5th July (On both days test were around 31,000)the very next day,on 6th July test numbers came down by 8000 &by 5200 on 7th July to show less number of positive patients.
#COVIDー19 can’t be controlled by number suppression.
As new ICMR guidelines allows COVID testing of every citizen and @mybmc declared it has adopted the guidelines & citizens are free to go to any lab and get their test done, it is my sincere request that..
