Delhi Metro resumes services after 169-day Covid hiatus

The Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) resumed services on Monday, September 7, after they were suspended over five months ago to ensure social distancing in order to curb the spread of the Covid-19 pandemic. The metro services began at 7 am on Monday on the Yellow Line that runs along 49 kms between HUDA City Centre and Samaypur Badli. This is the first corridor to have resumed its services as per the Centre’s guidelines for Covid-19.
