I have a couple of questions with regard to BMRCL's policy of transparency and accountability to the public. These questions come in the light of the recent allegations of favouritism made against the BMRCL in the Jayadeva realignment issue.

BMRCL is bound by the law regarding RTI. As regards Jayadeva realignment issue, the details are in the website since long! Aggrieved have the right to challenge the decision in court where the integrity, legality of the decision and transparency issues raised by you can be challenged and adjudicated.

1.Has BMRCL done any public meeting/ interaction programme during the construction of Phase 1 of the project to help people understand the magnitude of the project and the effect it will have on people who will be affected directly or indirectly with the project?

We have published the the details of the alignment and issues concerning it in the website and it has been widely carried to the public through media both print and visual media. There is no law requiring us to follow the procedure suggested by you. When land acquisition notification is issued by the land acquiring body - KIADB, affected persons can make representations against any matter of the project affecting their property for consideration of the competent authority. Aggrieved can seek redress through judicial process.

2. Do you plan to do similar interaction meetings or any public meeting with the people for Phase 2 considering that on of the reasons for delay of Phase 1 was litigation with regard to land acquisition?

No. We have no authority to do so. However, people can make representations which are examined and responded to by us. We have responded to all the petitions made to us. The petitions received in respect of phase2 alignment matters and our responses have been published in the website.

3.What is the process followed while fixing the compensation amounts during land acquisition? 
Does BMRCL take a unilateral decision with regard to the compensation amount based on Market value of the land or is there a process of negotiation, etc, with the public- similar to the consent award process followed for many projects taken up by government departments in the state? (eg: DULT for the Hubli Dharwad BRTS)

We have an expert - Mr C Krishnappa, former Revenue Secy to advise us. On the basis of the advice, we make an offer to the patron-land/property loser for consent award by KIADB under the Act. If not agreed by the patron-land loser, KIADB will pass a regular award under the Act. We do not negotiate with the patron land-loser. It can be done only by KIADB during the stage of Award Inquiry.

4.Do you study the impact of the project on areas where the Metro alignment is made? How are these made public? What is the process followed in fixing the alignment for the project? Are surveys and studies conducted by BMRCL made public? Where can these be accessed?

Studies on impact of Metro phase1 will be done after the project is completed. Media including your Paper however have done their own impact studies of which you may be aware. Of course, such studies, when done by us will be made public. But then will not the study will always be considered by you to be biased and self serving especially if it is favourable to us? 
The alignments are based on traffic studies that are part of the DPR. Procedure here is no different from that followed in Delhi which is in the third phase, Mumbai which is also in the third phase, Chennai, Hyderabad, Kochi and Jaipur. 

We will be publishing the DPR of phase2, in accordance with the RTI Act after the project is formally approved by GOI. Other surveys, reports and data are also published or made available in acvordance with the RTI Act. When we issue investment bonds, we will also come under SEBI's and Stock Exchange's listing requirements, we will then have added compliance to the financial regulators as well. We provide details about the project in the website and through press notes issued regularly and also address individual information requirements under RTI Act.

After going through the HPC proceedings mentioned above and getting to know that BBMP is yet to approve the building plan, I need the following information.

1. What is the nature of the other commercial/ residential structure proposed to be put up by Mantri (in terms of floor area and number of floors of the residential and commercial towers)

We have submitted detailed joint plans to BBMP. After approval of the plans, it becomes final. HCK has directed approval of the plans. BBMP has gone in Appeal but there is no stay order.

2. At what stage/s the construction of building/s are?

The station buildings are partially complete. Other elements of the station building such as parking spaces, station accesses etc are part of plan approval by BBMP since it is integrated with the facility of the joint development partner.

3. Whether the delay in obtaining the approval is coming in the way of completing the Sampige Road Metro Station?

Yes. The station facilities including accesses are only partially created.

4, While HPC proceedings mention that the building plan is a single integrated plan jointly submitted by BMRCL and Mantri to BBMP, the agreement specifies that obtaining all necessary approvals is the responsibility of the concessionaire. Pls clarify

M/s Mantri Developers prepared the plan and with our consent submitted it to the BBMP. BBMP insisted that the plan must be jointly submitted since structures are integrated. We have agreed with the decision of BBMP and submitted plan jointly signed by both the partners.

5. In the background of BBMP's refusal to approve the building plans, what is the future course of action of BMRCL in this regard?

The matter is sub-judice and there is an order of the HCK to grant approval to the plan subject to conditions which we have complied with. BBMP have moved HCK in an Appeal (after having taken time of one week from the court to grant approval) but there is no stay order. At this stage, we expect BBMP to comply with the order of the court which is based on the decision of the GoK directing BBMP to accord approval to the plan. We wait patiently. Of course, in this impasse, the work is suffering, as the Joint Development partner is unable to move ahead both in physical and financial terms as further release of funds for further development is conditional to formal plan approval by the Regulator.

VIJAY KARNATAKA


1. What is the first reaction by BMRCL for this condition of PIB ?

We have to fulfil the condition

2. Please elaborate on the methodology that will follow by the BMRCl to fulfill the FIRR rate of 6.5% by the Metro corporation in the future?

We will revisit the financials based on the deliberations at the meeting

3. Do you hopeful that the raise of the ticket fare will compensate the said FIRR?

It is one of the options which we will consider.

4. If so, what is estimated ridership in said arterial lines of phase 2 of the project? And those number found by any survey or the assumption based on the House Hold survey of Phase 1?

Ridership data in the project cannot be tweaked to improve FIRR. It is a basic design data on which the project is designed.

5. Finally, who is gonna take the responsibility if BMRCL fails to fulfill the FIRR condition put by the PIB in future?

The project MOU between GOI, GOK and BMRCL adequately addresses the matter regarding project sustainability. The GoI as a project partner is comfortable with a 6-6.5% FIRR at the stage of project evaluation. The anticipated cash flows being conservative estimates will enable achievement of the planned FIRR. As regards the responsibility for the achievement of corporate performance, there is a Board of Directors of the Company in which the shareholders ie GOI and GOK are represented in equal measure who are responsible for the performance of the company.

1.Could you elaborate on the methodology that will BMRCl plans to follow to fulfill the FIRR rate of 6.5%?

The financial data will be reviewed to address the matter.

2. Will increasing the ticket fare be an option? If yes, has there been a decision on how much it could be?

The fares are related not just to these lines but other lines as well. Therefore, this option may have a limited scope in the present context. Yet it will be looked into as it constitutes an important revenue component.

3. Given that the GoI and GoK are stakeholders of BMRCL, whose responsibility will it be if BMRCL fails to fulfill the FIRR condition put by the PIB in the future?

I have already answered this question which has appeared in a kannada daily today. Please look into the website.

4. We have learnt that BMRCL is willing to revisit the financials of the project, based on discussion at the PIB meeting, could you elaborate on how this would be done and touch upon certain basic intricacies.

Yes, all the details will be re-visited. Our proposals and results of our due diligence will be submitted to the GOI for consideration.
