DELHI (Metro Rail News): The Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) said on Monday that its services in the national capital would be disrupted on January 26 owing to Republic Day celebrations. According to a statement, all metro station parking lots will be blocked from 6 a.m. on January 25 to 2 p.m. on January 26.

It further stated that on January 26, “as part of the security precautions for the Republic Day festivities as per the directives of Delhi Police,” services on the yellow line, which runs from HUDA City Centre to Samaypur Badli, will be partially regulated.

“During this time, travellers can interchange from Line 2 to Line 6 (Kashmere Gate to Raja Nahar Singh) and vice versa at the Central Secretariat Metro station. At 6:30 p.m., regular service will be restored at these stations. “It was also added.

Intelligence reports suggested that a terror organisation would try to carry out attacks throughout the national capital in January; hence Delhi has been converted into a fortress ahead of the Republic Day celebrations. The Delhi Police has deployed over 27,000 officers to avoid any unforeseen situations.

According to news agency ANI, Delhi Police Commissioner Rakesh Asthana said, “Last year, preparations for Republic Day began just after the Independence Day celebrations. We must exercise additional vigilance in Delhi because it is always under threat of terrorism. We’re on high alert again this year. To keep track of all anti-terror efforts, security agencies are cooperating with Delhi Police.”

Vehicle inspections, checking of lodges, tenant, servant, and labourer verification have all been stepped up. “To safeguard airspace, counter-rogue drone technology is being deployed. Other agencies, in addition to the Delhi Police, are working together to secure the airspace. In and around Central Vista, all agencies are cooperating with Delhi Police,” he stated.

“We will finalise the contractor shortly, and these vehicles will be available in six months,” an official said. In the increased parking area at Wimco Nagar, there will be a particular lane for these buggies to run between the stations. “Since these vehicles cannot be operated on the road, we will make a separate lane,” the official stated.

Thousands of people exit the station at Vadapalani and proceed to the nearby Forum Mall. They will benefit from this service. “The largest underground station in the world is the Chennai Central Metro, and many senior folks and others find it difficult to walk from the concourse to the lift point.” “These buggies will only run on the concourse level,” he explained.
