Soon your confusion over directions in interchange metro stations will come to an end.

On the lines of the Tokyo Metro, the DMRC is also going to put special directional signages at all its interchange Metro stations soon.

These signages will help passengers identify which platform, destination station or line they intend to travel in, said a DMRC official.

These signages will be put up on the floor near automatic fare collection (AFC) gates of the stations so that the commuters can easily understand or identify which side of the station they need to go to board the right train.

The signages will be bilingual—in English and Hindi—for the convenience of the commuters, said DMRC spokesperson. "There will be more such signages inside the paid area of concourse level which will further guide the passengers," said a DMRC spokesperson.

Recently, directional signages have been installed at Central Secretariat Metro station which is an interchange station for Line-2 (Huda City Centre to Jahangirpuri) and Line-6 (Central Secretariat to Badarpur).

Similar signages will put at other interchange stations like Rajiv Chowk, interchange station for Line-2 and Line-3; Kashmere Gate, interchange station for Line-1 and Line-2; Inderlok, interchange station for Line-1 and Line-5; and Yamuna Bank, interchange station for Line-3 and Line-4.

"All the interchange stations will be covered within a fortnight," said a DMRC official.

Passenger-friendly interchange directional signages will help the passengers of the Delhi Metro to a great extent, said DMRC.
