Heavy rainfall and gusty winds spelt trouble for commuters in the National Capital Region (NCR) on a gloomy Wednesday morning.

Delhi recorded 3.9 mm rainfall till 8.30 am. The heavy monsoon showers led to waterlogging in many areas and massive traffic jams.

Gurgaon Police issued an advisory on Twitter asking commuters to be patient and maintain lanes. Delhi Police too alerted commuters about waterlogging and free routes, to avoid chaos. Companies in Gurgaon have asked their employees to work from home in light of the rain and massive traffic jams.

While some people seemed to be enjoying the shower, several office-goers were annoyed. Here are some pictures and videos:
