This is very sad for us that Metro station are developed for the purpose of commuters facilities not for the developing suicide platform. We need to work together to reduce the suicidal rates.

Violet line Metro

There are such numbers of suicides cases coming out on daily basis. In India there was Close to 800 000 people die due to suicide every year, which is one person every 40 seconds. Now the main question arises that only person who is committing suicide is responsible for such incidence or the family member our society. Supreme Court of India has also declared suicides as non- criminal action. Government has also facilitated direct help for mentally ill person.

Solution to reduce suicide rate at Metro platform:

Suicide at metro platform can be reducing by installing Platform Screen Door (PSD). Platform Screen Door must be install at all the Metro station. If PSD will be installed in all the Metro station then probability of suicides rate will decrease. At present Delhi Metro has installed PSD at Magenta, Airport, Pink line but there is also argent need for installing in all other existing line.
