The Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) closed the entry to Saket Metro station on Tuesday afternoon due to waterlogging at the underground station after incessant rainfall in several parts of the Capital.

While the station has been closed for commuters, DMRC officials said that operations on the Yellow line (Samaypur Badli -HUDA city centre) have not been affected.

DMRC tweeted, “Service Update Trains are currently not stopping at Saket Metro station. Entry/exit gates have been closed due to waterlogging. Services otherwise normal on entire Yellow Line.”
