JUDGEMENT

- (1.) Subject-matter of all these appeals is intimately inter-connected. Though the learned Trial Court on the different suits filed by the plaintiffs, passed separate judgments and decrees, common theme runs through these judgments and the course of action adopted by the learned Additional District Judge is same or similar. Due to little difference in the factual matrix in two cases, the outcome thereof is different from others as they are dismissed while others are partly decreed. We shall take note of such differences while discussing each appeal after answering the question of law in these appeals, which is identical/common.
(2.) For the sake of convenience, while discussing the legal position, we shall be taking cognizance of the facts as they appear in RFA No.154/2007.
(3.) In order to ease out congestion of traffic on roads and also to provide effective public transport system, the idea of Metro Rail was conceived by the Government few years ago. Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) was incorporated to translate the plan into reality. In remarkable time the DMRC has brought Mass Rapid Transit System (MRTS) on tracks. It is a soothing sight to find Metro Rail running all over Delhi-at many places it is underground and some tracks are elevated. DMRC, though a corporation owned by the Government, has proved that public sector corporation can also work with desired electricity speed and efficiency, that too without compromising on quality. Not only the deadlines fixed for the construction of different tracks were met, on many occasions the projects completed even before the stipulated time fixed in the plans. Delhi Metro Rail today is a success story talked about and appreciated all over, not only in Delhi but in India, nay world over.;
