DELHI (Metro Rail News): The Metro trains in Delhi will resume their regular weekend schedule on Saturday, officials said, after the national capital removed Covid-19 restrictions due to a decrease in the number of infections. To comply with the weekend curfew that was lifted on Thursday, Metro services have been limited at a 15-minute gap frequency on the yellow and blue lines, and 20 minutes on all other lines.

When the Omicron-dominated third wave began to soar in the capital city on January 8, a weekend curfew was implemented in Delhi. Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) tweeted “In view of the latest guidelines issued by the Govt. for the containment of Covid-19 in NCT Delhi, Metro services on weekends (Sat/Sun) will again resume as per routine weekend timetable on all Lines starting tomorrow i.e, 29th January 2022.”

The Metro trains will run at 100 per cent seating capacity, with no standing provision. The DMRC also indicated that entry to stations will be limited based on the current scenario to guarantee compliance with Covid rules. On Thursday, the Delhi Disaster Management Authority (DDMA), chaired by Lieutenant Governor Anil Baijal, met with the Delhi government and decided to lift the weekend lockdown and halt the city’s odd-even method of opening non-essential shops.

In light of the better Covid situation, the DDMA also permitted restaurants, pubs, cinema halls, and theatres to reopen with a 50% capacity. As previously mentioned, there will be a modest modification in Metro services on the Yellow Line today in honour of the Beating Retreat event. The DMRC has previously announced that Metro services at the Central Secretariat and Udyog Bhawan Metro stations on Line 2 will be suspended from 2 pm to 6.30 pm on January 29.

During this time, travellers can transfer from Kashmere Gate to Raja Nahar Singh and vice versa at the Central Secretariat Metro station. After 6:30 p.m., normal services will be resumed, according to the statement.
