New Delhi (Metro Rail News): It has already been more than four months now after the metro services across the nation were shut down in view of COVID-19 and the nationwide lockdown. The Delhi Metro which caters to a huge mass of people using public transport in the national Capital is one of the worst-hit metro institutions of the nation as it has already lost a revenue collection of worth Rs 1000 crore due to the lockdown.

According to media reports and some official sources, the DMRC is likely to resume its services after Independence Day, a senior official in the DMRC said on Sunday, adding that the Metro has prepared itself to the point where they can reopen with a two-day notice. He further said that the Metro services were ready to be reopened this month with the arrival of the Unlock 3 guideline from the Ministry of Home Affairs but due to security reasons in light of August 15 preparations, it was decided to wait till a later date this month after Independence Day.

“We had several meetings and we were ready to begin operations by the end of July but due to security reasons for August 15 celebrations it has been decided that another review meeting will take place after Independence Day after which Metro services may start,” a DMRC official was quoted saying by few news agencies.

However, the official added that the Delhi government and the MHA have been on somewhat of a loggerhead with respect to taking a call on reopening the Metro services here. The state government has made its position clear that it would like for the Metro to reopen at least for essential workers but one senior official in the Delhi government said the final call lies with the Centre.

The recent guidelines issued by the Ministry of Home Affairs of the Central government has not yet taken any decision on the operation of metro services and further the Metro services will remain closed for commuters until MHA issues a further notice in this matter.”

  1. In a country like India imposing total ban on rail services which is the most popular&widely used mode of transport other than road transport within the nation is totally not practically possible people&their near&dear ones are stuck where they were at the imposing of nationwide LD which has proved not so effective answer for the taming of this virus on the negative side families are crammed inside their homes unable to visit relatives&friends dueto total curb on public transport & hence loss of immunity a/w health issues are slowly developing amongst each other govt should open up gradually all curbs&bans implemented in our country
