    Mumbai Metro is EXCELLENT………VERY GOOD SERVICE……but still I would like to request the MMRDA ,who are in charge of Mumbai Metro,to create an autonomous agency – MUMBAI METRO RAIL CORPORATION,just like on the lines of DMRC & KMRC,so that MUMBAI METRO becomes the best METRO of INDIA after DELHI & KOLKATA.
