Listen to the news
For the safety of passengers during the transition period, DMRC personnel are constantly watching. Despite this, if a coach has more passengers than scheduled during the journey, then the train operator will be immediately alerted. After this, after stopping the metro at the next station, passengers will be sent in separate coaches so that the rules of social distancing are not ignored anywhere.
You will get alerts as soon as you gain weight
On an average, a weight of around 3500 kg has been fixed for 50 passengers. If the number of passengers in any coach is high, the train operator will be alerted as soon as the weight increases. Since passengers cannot be sent from one coach to another during operations, it will be done at the next station. This was done once on Monday near Laxmi Nagar metro station so that it is not overlooked in following the rules of social distancing.
Services on the Yellow Line were affected for more than half an hour
Traffic between Rajiv Chowk and New Delhi was affected due to technical fault (weld fracture) from 8 am to 8.30 am. However after fixing it after about half an hour, services returned to normal.
