To make it convenient for Metro commuters, the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) has put identification number on all its six-coach trains.
These trains, from Monday, will have '6' marked prominently on the front and rear. The windows of the train operator's coach (the first and last coaches of the trains) will also have '6' printed on them.
"This will help commuters to stand in the right place to get to the Metro doors before boarding the trains," said a spokesperson of DMRC.
Also, announcements would be made before a six-coach train arrives at a station.
For passengers' assistance, additional customer facilitation agents have also been deputed at the busy stations, the spokesperson said.
The DMRC introduced six-coach Metro train on December 23 on Lines 3 and 4 (Dwarka Sector 21 - Noida City Centre/Anand Vihar), and on Line 2 (Jahangirpuri-HUDA City Centre) earlier this month.
At present, there are six 'six-coach' trains on Lines 3 and 4, and two such trains on Line 2. However, by the end of this year, the DMRC plans to increase the number to 95 in its Metro network.
On Line 2, there will be 54 six-coach trains and on Line 3, there will be 39 six-coach trains.
