Rajiv Chowk, the busiest station that sees a footfall of 5 lakh a day, Barakhamba Road, Pragati Maidan, Mandi House and Khan Market, Central Secretariat, Patel Chowk, Udyog Bhawan and Race Course stations were opened for traffic in phases.

All the nine stations, except Rajiv Chowk, had closed their doors for public since Sunday after Delhi Police asked the Delhi Metro to shut down operations in these stations.

While Rajiv Chowk was open on Sunday, it remained shut on Monday and most part of Tuesday.

The Metro stations were shut to prevent protesters from reaching India Gate.
