This weekend, that is, on January 8 and 9, Delhi will remain under curfew as per guidelines issued by DDMA. During the curfew, metro services will be available at full capacity. However, the frequency of metro services will be reduced for the weekend.
As per the statement released by DMRC on January 5, metro trains will be available at a frequency of 15 minutes on the Yellow Line (i.e. HUDA City Centre to Samaypur Badli) and Blue Line (i.e. Dwarka Sec-21 to NOIDA Electronic City/Vaishali). On all other lines, trains will be available at a frequency of 20 minutes during the weekend curfew. For the rest of the weekdays, Metro services will continue to remain available as usual as per the existing guidelines.
As per the latest guidelines, while travelling in Metro, 100% sitting is allowed but no standing is allowed. Therefore, entry to the trains and stations shall continue to remain highly restrictive as only a limited number of passengers (50 only) per coach are allowed.
The statement also mentioned that the commuters must keep extra time at hand while commuting by Metro as entry would still continue to be regulated to ensure compliance with the guidelines which may result in queues/ waiting outside stations.
