New rules for commuters amid rising omicron cases

Delhi Metro:

The DMRC declared that no standing passengers will be allowed in metro trains, just hours after the Delhi government imposed new covid protocols

The Delhi Metro Rail Corporation said that in view of the new Covid guidelines, travel will be allowed only up to 50% seating capacity inside the trains.

Entry into Metro stations will be regulated by restricting the number of gates to ensure compliance with the guidelines

Officials said that there will be no change in the schedule of trains. But now out of 712 metro gates, only 444 will be kept open as of now

DMRC announced the restrictions after Delhi Government's "YELLOW ALERT" under the first phase of Graded Response Action Plan (Grap) 

Delhi Metro operations were shut in March last year during the lockdown, and was resumed at 50% capacity in September

Delhi Metro has incurred huge operational losses due to the restrictions, and the DMRC has already written to the state government and the Centre for financial assistance
