New Delhi. After the increasing cases of Corona in Delhi, Weekend Curfew has been implemented and due to this changes were also made in Metro services. Last week, the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) changed the frequency of metro trains. Following the guidelines of DDMA, DMRC had slightly increased the frequency of metro trains on 8 and 9 January 2022. Due to which the passengers traveling in the metro had to wait longer for the trains. At the same time, this week also passengers will have to travel according to this schedule. Delhi Metro Rail Corporation has not made any changes in the guidelines implemented last time, so on January 15 and 16 also, passengers will have to wait for at least 15 minutes for metro trains.
According to DMRC, last week the frequency of trains going from HUDA City Center to Samaypur Badli on the Yellow Line Metro network and from Dwarka Sector 21 to Noida Electronic City and Vaishali on the Blue Line was increased by 15 minutes. In such a situation, on this Saturday and Sunday also, people will have to wait for 15 minutes on the station platform for the next train.
Whereas, except for the Yellow and Blue lines, metro trains on all other lines, Magenta, Red, Violet, Pink, Green etc. will be available at a frequency of 20 minutes. However, this change was made only for the weekend curfew and will be applicable on weekends only. On other working days of the week, from Monday to Friday, trains will continue to be available on normal frequency as before.
It is worth noting that according to the guidelines issued recently by Delhi Metro, now all metro trains are running with 100 percent seating capacity. At present, passengers are not allowed to travel standing in metro trains. Therefore, travel can be done only by sitting on the seats in the passenger coaches. In this sense, only 50 people in one coach and only 400 passengers in the entire train of 8 coaches can travel at a time. Along with this, an appeal has also been made by Delhi Metro to the people to take more time during the journey so that there is no delay in reaching the destination due to the queues and waiting time of passengers outside the stations.
