AFTER MUMBRA, NMMT BUSES MAY SOON PLY IN MUMBAI AND KALYAN

nmmt-1After the successful entry of NMMT buses in Mumbra, Navi Mumbai Municipal Transport’s long pending dream of plying buses to Mumbai and Kalyan could also become a reality if everything goes according to its plan. In a meeting with the State Transport department, NMMT Chairman Shashi Damodaran presented the long pending proposal of NMMT buses entering in Mumbai and Kalyan. The meeting finalized that NMMT could ply about 20 km in to Mumbai and Kalyan regions once the papers are signed. This would mean that city corporation buses can enter Dadar, Bandra or Ghatkopar. Meanwhile, when pointed out the objection from the General Manager of BEST, Uttam Khobragade, Damodaran said that Khobragade has no authority to do so. Damodaran added that the final decision lies with the secretary and Mantralaya officials. NMMT requires approval from Road Transport Association and so have to submit an application, which will also be sent to Mantralaya under the guidance of the state department. It maybe recalled that the proposal have been pending for a while now due to the intense objection of BEST GM Uttam Khobragade. Many feel that Khobragade has more authority than a manager and that it would require a lot of determination and political endorsing to ensure that NMMT buses cross the city limits.
