New Delhi, September 11

All lines of the Delhi Metro will start operating Saturday, including the Airport Express Line (New Delhi to Dwarka Sector-21).

From Saturday, passengers will be able to commute from 6 am to 11 pm and the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) has made all the necessary arrangements for its proper functionality.

To avoid huge crowd in the metro as well as at the stations, DMRC Managing Director Mangu Singh has appealed to the people that they should refrain from travelling during peak hours.

“All services of Delhi Metro will resume from September 12 and it will be available at all lines in normal timing. But I want to bring it into your notice that the capacity has been reduced due to the social distancing protocol.”

“Earlier, we used to carry 250 to 300 passengers at once but now the capacity has been reduced to 50 only. Hence, I request you to refrain from travelling during peak hours. If you do this then Delhi Metro will be able to serve you better,” he added.

He also warned against thinking that everything has returned to normal while urging to continue “work from home”.

The Delhi Metro, the lifeline of the city and the National Capital Region, resumed its services on September 7 in a graded manner.

During the 171-day shutdown, it incurred a revenue loss of over Rs 1,500 crore, about Rs 10 crore per day on an average. IANS
