New Delhi: The Metro Rail service resumes today after nearly three weeks in the wake of the Kovid-19 situation in the national capital. However, only 50 per cent of the seating capacity is allowed and passengers cannot stand and travel, officials said.
Delhi Metro Rail Corporation has completely shut down service from May 20 on the back of Kovid Lockdown. The service was discontinued on April 19. Only people with essential services were allowed to roam. It has since been discontinued since May 10, when the second wave of Kovid-19 cases increased.
The Metro train service will resume from 6 am today. DMRC officials said that only about half of the trains started in five to 15 minutes on different routes.
On the back of what Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal announced on Saturday, the Metro has been able to accommodate half the capacity from today.
