RInfra's Mumbai Metro One Pvt. Ltd CEO Abhay Mishra made the announcement at a media conference in Mumbai on Saturday morning.

Accordingly, the 11.4 km long Versova-Andheri-Ghatkopar east-west corridor with 12 stations en route on the elevated line will become operational from Sunday, proving to be a boon for Mumbaikars, especially with the monsoon around the corner.

The minimum fare in the Mumbai Metro is Rs 10 and maximum is Rs 40.

The Reliance Infrastructure (RInfra), which has a majority stake in the consortium titled Mumbai Metro One Private Limited (MMOPL) where the state government and Veolia is also a minor partner, managed to increase the fair as per their wish.

It was the second hike in the Mumbai Metro fair even before it has been inaugurated.

In September 2013, the Chief Minister had increased the ticket rates as per the clauses of the concession agreement signed between Rinfra and state authorities.
