Delhi Metro train services may start soon

Now that the Indian passenger trains have restarted, it is likely that the Delhi Metro may also resume its operations. Recently, the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) took to Twitter to share that its housekeeping staff has been busy sanitising the AFC gates, escalators and other parts of the premises these days.

On the other hand, the DMRC has started its construction activities on Grey Line, Airport Express Line (AEL) and Phase IV. Phase IV is expected to add 103 km to the existing network of DMRC trains.

During the nation-wide lockdown, a few metro stations were permitted to remain open but only on certain conditions.

According to the DMRC guidelines issued earlier, passengers are supposed to wear mouth cover and also have the Aarogya Setu app installed on their mobile phones to travel in Delhi Metro.
Passengers will also have to remove every metallic object they are seen wearing by the security staff to get entry into the metro station premises. All entry points will have hand sanitisers for the commuters.

Undergoing thermal screening will be mandatory for all the passengers. Passengers with flu-like symptoms won’t be allowed to travel. All metro stations will have a minimum of two extra Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) suits for attending to a suspected passenger or luggage.

Passengers looking forward to using Delhi metro services should stay at a safe distance from other passengers. Considering the surge in COVID-19 positive cases, prevention is the only remedy that is applicable to metro train commuters as well.
