It was only in March 23 that mid-day reported the Mumbai Rail Vikas Corporation’s (MRVC) grand plans to remodel Dadar and Kurla stations, for which even blueprints were drawn up.

However, the twin projects were canned earlier this month as the Railway Board ruled that they will incur substantial losses.

The projects were supposed to be funded by the money that remained of a World Bank loan.

As per the plan, rail authorities were to build elevated roads leading to the stations, inter-connected foot over bridges (FOBs), mini-malls above platforms, escalators and new ticket counters. Work was to begin after 2016.

“At this rate, Mumbai will have no infrastructure project which will be operational after 2016 on the suburban system,” said a MRVC official.
