NEW DELHI-Delhi Metro rail corporation issued another statement over the weekend curfew imposed by Delhi Government last week.

According to DMRC statement it said, This is to reiterate that the Metro services will continue to be regulated this weekend (15th and 16th January 2022) too, in compliance with the DDMA guidelines issued last week regarding weekend curfew, as  per the following schedule:-

1) Metro trains will be available at a frequency of 15 minutes on the Yellow Line (i.e. HUDA City Centre to Samaypur Badli) and Blue Line (i.e. Dwarka Sec-21 to NOIDA Electronic City/Vaishali) 

2) On all other lines, trains will be available at a frequency of 20 minutes during the weekend curfew. 

For rest of the weekdays i.e. from Monday to Friday, Metro services will continue to remain available as usual as per the extant guidelines. 

It is noteworthy to mention that as per the extant Guidelines, though 100% sitting is allowed in metro trains,  no standing is allowed.  Therefore, entry to the trains and stations shall continue to remain highly restrictive as only limited number of passengers (50 only)  per coach are allowed. 

It is advisable that travel only if absolutely  essential, also keep extra time during commuting by Metro as entry shall still continue  to be regulated to ensure compliance with the Guidelines which may result in queues/ waiting outside stations.
