CIDCO takes action against illegal dumping of debris on its land, conducting special drives to apprehend vehicles involved. Two dumpers seized in Gavanpada and one in Kharghar. Cases registered at Nhava-Sheva and Kharghar police stations. Public urged to report incidents through CIDCO's website or local police station.
CIDCO said the services on the 11.10-kilometre route were being thrown open to the public without any official programme. “The metro service will commence on Friday between Pendhar to Belapur Terminal and Belapur Terminal to Pendhar at 3pm, with the last service being at 10pm
Residents of sectors 34C and 34B in Kharghar, Mumbai, have complained to CIDCO about an attempt to encroach on a public pathway. Four housing societies have written letters of concern to CIDCO, stating that the pathway, which has been accessible for decades, is now barricaded with tin sheets. The residents fear that this encroachment will lead to the loss of a convenient route to the Metro station and main road, and may result in over 500m detours for around 3,000 residents. If CIDCO fails to remove the encroachments, the residents are prepared to take legal action. CIDCO officials have not commented on the matter.
State opposition leader Vijay Wadettiwar has threatened to inaugurate the Navi Mumbai metro service, which has been repeatedly delayed due to the unavailability of Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Wadettiwar accused the government of delaying public service projects for political gain.
