Last week, Mr Kejriwal had asked Mr Gahlot to find, within a week, a way to stop the "anti-people" fare hike.
Existing rules do not allow the central government to interfere with the Metro train fares, neither do they allow metro operations either by the state or central governments, Union Urban Affairs Minister Hardeep Singh Puri said on Monday.
The source said Puri suggested such a provision since operational loss was the responsibility of the state government as per the metro guidelines.
Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Sunday wrote to Union Minister Hardeep Singh Puri and said that his government is ready to bear the losses the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) will suffer due to suspension in metro price hike, only if the central government pays the matching grant.
The FFC-recommended fare hike, a second in seven months, will come into effect on October 10. He also noted that the alternative to fare hike was to provide DMRC yearly grants-in-aid for the next five years: Rs 3,040 crore, Rs 3,616 crore, Rs 3,318 crore, Rs 3,150 crore and Rs 2,980 crore respectively. "However, till that happens, let the spirit of partnership prevail and I do hope that you will and a mutually acceptable solution to the present impasse relating to the second fare hike which we clearly regard as anti-people", the letter said.
The central government and the Delhi government are 50-50 hold of the DMRC and its equity etc.
Paramount Nabs The Movie Rights To 'Sonic The Hedgehog'
Fowler was the director of the 2005 Academy Award-nominated animated short film " Gopher Broke ", which was produced by Miller. Sony Pictures previously had the rights to the video game character, but now Sonic has landed with Paramount Pictures.
Speaker Ram Niwas Goel ordered that Manjinder Singh Sirsa and Om Prakash Sharma be marshalled out as the BJP MLAs kept raising the issue despite his repeated requests to stick to the agenda of fare hike, for which the day-long special session has been convened.
"Neither the central government nor the state government, or even the board of the company, has legal power to change the recommendations made by the FFC", Puri's letter read.
The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) has also warned of protests if the DMRC remains adamant on increasing fares.
Starting Tuesday, Delhi Metro rides will become costlier by a maximum of Rs 10 for those travelling over two kilometres in the city.
"The three suggestions made by CM - Centre directing its nominees on DMRC to seek postponing hike, sharing 50% of operational losses, handing over DMRC operations to Delhi government - are a violation of the existing law and policies and governments can not be seen violating their own laws".
