Metro to resume from tomorrow with 50% capacity

Sunday, 06 June 2021 | Staff Reporter | NEW DELHI

In the wake of revised guidelines issued by the Delhi Government, the Delhi Metro services will be resumed for general public from June 7, 2021 with 50 per cent seating capacity only.

On Monday, only half of the available trains will be inducted into service with a frequency ranging from approximately 5 to 15 minutes frequency on different Lines, the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) said in a statement.

“The number of trains will be inducted in full strength in a graded manner by Wednesday and thereafter, services will be available as per normal frequency which was available before the lockdown,” it said.

“In order to ensure social distancing and compliance to 50 per cent seating inside trains, public is also advised to take extra time for their daily commute and exhibit covid appropriate behaviour outside the stations also while waiting for their turn to enter the station,” it added.

The DMRC further said that entry at stations will continue to be regulated through identified gates as was the practice earlier.  “The DMRC is also writing to appropriate authorities for maintenance of law and order outside metro stations to handle the extra rush as the services resume once again from Monday in the ongoing pandemic scenario,” it stated.

The DMRC has advised the general public to cooperate with the Metro authorities in ensuring compliance to Covid appropriate behaviour inside Metro premises throughout their travel.
