The commissioner of Metro Rail Safety inspected the Chhatarpur station on Wednesday and gave the necessary clearances to begin operations there.
The parking lot, spread over 12,000 sq. m. — the largest parking area available in any Delhi Metro station — however, is not going to be open for public use now. "From Thursday, around 4,000 sq. m. of parking area will be available. Nearly 800 two-wheelers and 200 cars can be accommodated in that space. The rest of the parking area will be opened in a phased manner," a DMRC official said.
