After more than 60-days of complete shutdown, the metro rail services in Delhi are likely to resume soon from June 1, the Live Hindustan reported on Monday.
However, it wouldn’t me same experience as it was earlier as there will no crowding at the metro stations or inside the trains. A total of 50 people will be allowed to travel in a coach and the longest eight-coach train will get 400 passengers at a time.
The Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) has chalked out a strategy for passengers to ensure their safety in wake of the coronavirus pandemic.
According to the new rules by the DMRC, the passenger will have to follow social distancing norms and maintain a distance of at least one-metre while travelling in the metro and that will be monitored by the metro security personnel through CCTV cameras.
Those who are sitting in the coaches will have to leave one seat vacant (occupying alternate seat). The DMRC has pasted stickers on the seat with a message of social distancing, Live Hindustan quoted metro officials as saying.
