o KMRC proposed an integrated rapid mass transportation system.
o Concern - existing North South metro railway corridor.
o Removal of the existing competitive bus services running parallel to the proposed metro routes.
o Critics - No gain from the project.
o Concessions - project financing.
o Fate similar to the North South metro railway corridor project.
o KMRC's proposed fares were Higher.
o In a welfare State, Government is
expected to act for the larger benefit of
society. Given that the state government
will have to acquire land and regulate
the competitive mass transportation
market along with funding the project
with public money, would the state be
justified in its role as a sponsor and a
facilitator to the EWMC project ?
