NEW DELHI (Metro Rail News): Transport Minister Kailash Gahlot has asked DMRC to submit an investigation report in seven days on the recurring breakdown of metros. This decision has come a day after there was a delay in services between Samaypur Badli and Vishwavidyalaya on the Yellow Line of the Delhi Metro.
“There have been recurring incidences of breakdowns on various lines of Delhi Metro this month causing inconvenience to passengers. Have directed @OfficialDMRC to submit investigation report in next 7 days on the breakdowns and remedial action taken to ensure seamless operations,” Gahlot tweeted.
Previously the services have been delayed on the Blue Line on several occasions in June. Blue Line connects Dwarka Sector-21 in Delhi with Electronic City in Noida. Services were briefly delayed on the Blue Line on Sunday due to a fault in a train at the Mandi House Metro Station, officials had said.
The Blue Line had suffered a major technical snag on June 9, when commuters were stranded for over two hours. On June 6, commuters on the same line suffered an hour-and-a-half-long delay as services came down with a technical snag caused by a bird hit.
