Mumbai, Jun 30 (PTI) A city NGO has moved the Bombay High Court challenging the charges levied by the authorities for using the Bandra-Worli sea link being inaugurated by Congress President Sonia Gandhi on Tuesday.

The monthly pass charges amounting to Rs 2500 was not logical and was on a higher side, said Bombay Youth Association President Pradeep Bhavnani in a letter to the Chief Justice.

The return entry fees was Rs 75 and if a motorist travels every day using this sea link it would amount to Rs 2250 for 30 days in a month. Therefore, charging Rs 2500 for the monthly pass was not logical, Bhavnani pleaded.

The Association President urged the Chief justice to convert his letter into a suo motu writ petition as the issue concerns public interest at large.

If the court does not consider the letter, he would then file a regular petition in the form of Public Interest Litigation, hletter, petition,e said.
