Services will remain closed for commuters until further notice: Delhi Metro

New Delhi, June 30

Delhi Metro services will remain closed for commuters until further notice, in view of the ‘Unlock 2’ guidelines issued by the government, officials said on Tuesday.

The Delhi Metro has been closed since March 22 when the ‘Janata Curfew’ was observed in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. Subsequently, the nationwide lockdown was announced which came into effect from March 25.

“Delhi Metro services will remain closed for commuters until further notice, in view of the guidelines issued by the government,” a senior official said.

The Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) also tweeted to announce that services will remain closed.

During normal operations days, the average daily ridership of the DMRC is over 26 lakh.

The Centre on Monday night issued guidelines for the month-long ‘Unlock 2’ — the “phased reopening” of activities that had been barred to contain the spread of COVID-19 in the country — and said educational institutions, Metro Rail services, cinema halls and gyms would continue to remain closed.

The Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) issued the detailed guidelines that will be applicable from July 1, after the ‘Unlock 1’ phase ends on June 30. PTI
