NEW Delhi, India (Metro Rail News): Delhi Metro Rail Corporation has initiated its refurbishing of the 70 trains that came into service in 2007. The refurbishment includes installing various amenities like CCTV cameras, LCD route maps, charging points etc.

DMRC, through its official statement, proclaimed that 10 of the oldest trains will get refurbished entirely by September 2022. The Managing director of DMRC, Mangu Singh, unveiled the first refurbished train at Yamuna Bank Station on 29th November 2020. As a result, the 8.5 km stretch between Tis Hazari and Shahdara expanded into an operational network of 391 km linking 286 stations. Earlier, it covered only six stations.

The refurbishment includes installing various amenities like CCTV cameras, LCD route maps, charging points etc.

According to Anuj Dayal, executive director, Corporate Communications, DMRC stressed the need for refurbishment as most of the trains had completed the 14-19 years of their entire 30 years of lifespan. It includes repairing the bulging and uneven surfaces, including cracks.

Dayal also stated that the authorities were receiving complaints from commuters about uneven surfaces and poor aesthetic looks. Modern fibre composite boards replace the floor to increase the safety of passengers. DMRC has installed air conditioning, fire detection and air ventilation systems. Moreover, officials also added that good mobile and laptop charging points are also provided for each coach. Old maps got replaced with LCD maps, and CCTV’s will result in effective surveillance.
