Come June and the premises of all Delhi Metro stations will remain clean round the clock.

In a bid to ensure world-class cleanliness, the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) has procured a set of new equipment and machinery - including electrically operated scrubber drier and back pack vacuum cleaners - at all its stations and their surrounding areas in Delhi, Gurgaon, Noida and Ghaziabad.

Officials said, keeping in view the fact that room for mistakes by cleaning staff would be more considering the proposed expansion of the network under Phase III, the corporation had made arrangements for automated cleaning.

“These new equipment would provide mechanised cleaning operations and ensure dust free sweeping and cleaning. The new system will also dispose waste and garbage in bio-degradable disposal bags,” said Anuj Dayal, spokesperson of DMRC.
