The Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) is working with the Delhi Police and the Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) officials to work out a list of standard operating procedures (SOPs) to be followed before restarting train services, officials with direct knowledge of the matter said.
Metro services in Delhi have remained suspended since March 22, when the janta curfew was observed. While other modes of public transport have been allowed with restrictions during the gradual easing of lockdown norms, Metro services have remained suspended. Before it was halted, Delhi Metro carried 24 lakh passengers daily.
Officials said some of the ideas under discussion include restricting the entry of passengers at the station gates, marking separate entry/exit gates and maintaining queues based on the destination
