New Delhi: 

The Metro rail service in the national capital will resume from September 7 after being shut for over six months because of the coronavirus pandemic, the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation said in a tweet on Saturday, after the Centre released its Unlock4 guidelines.

“As per the latest guidelines, Delhi Metro will be resuming its services for public from 7 September 2020 onwards in a calibrated manner. Details on the Metro functioning and its usage will be shared once the detailed SOP (standard operating procedure) on Metros is issued by MoHUA,” DMRC tweeted.

The Centre, in its Unlock4 guidelines today, allowed Metro services across the country in a graded manner.

“Metro rail will be allowed to operate with effect from 7th September 2020 in a graded manner, by the Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs (MOHUA)/ Ministry of Railways (MOR), in consultation with MHA. In this regard, Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) will be issued by MOHUA,” the Centre said in a statement today.
