Metro update - January 28, 2019

Update just received from Jamshed Sukhadwalla, petitioner in the Atash Behram case, and lawyer Zerick Dastur, via community activist Jehangir Bisney 

The Atash Behram matter was heard today (January 28, 2019) before the Supreme Court. Fali Nariman and Zerick Dastur appeared on behalf of the petitioners.

Mumbai Metro Rail Corporation Limited has filed an affidavit before the Supreme Court stating that the Kalbadevi station box has now been shortened by approx 22 m. As a result the station box will now be approx 20 m away from the nearest boundary of Wadiaji Atash Behram as against the earlier proposed location of the box which was very close to the Atash Behram with an overlap of 2.125 m.

The Supreme Court has taken the aforesaid on record. The matter will now be taken up on February 15, 2019.
