As many as 15,500 passengers availed the services of Delhi Metro’s Yellow Line and Gurugram’s Rapid Metro till 8.30 p.m. on Monday, the first day of resumption of metro services since India went into lockdown in late March due to the COVID-19 pandemic. “This is an approximate figure as the last trains started from terminal stations at 8.30 p.m. Final figures may have minor upward revision by the end of revenue service,” said a DMRC official.

Earlier in the evening, DMRC tweeted, “Delhi Metro has begun its graded resumption of services today. Travelling from Rajiv Chowk to Malviya Nagar by metro, MD-DMRC Mangu Singh inspected the system keeping in view the new guidelines during the Pandemic.”
