DMRC kept commuters in loop via tweets

Commuters using the Delhi Metro were in for delays on several lines due to technical snags on Wednesday.

DMRC officials said that there was slow movement of trains between Tis Hazari and Shastri Park and Pitampura-Keshav Puram section of the Red Line in the morning and later, there was a delay in the Blue Line as well as between Dwarka and Kirti Nagar due to a technical snag on the section. There was also a delay in service from Ghevra to Inderlok and Kirti Nagar stations on the Green Line and between Noida Electronic City and Akshardham in the evening on the Blue Line.

A passenger jumping onto the tracks at Kaushambi station of the Blue Line caused delays from 9.56 a.m. to 10.03 a.m. and it also sowed down the system, the DMRC said.

DMRC officials did not elaborate on the nature of the snag but kept commuters informed by tweeting about the delays from the official Delhi Metro handle on twitter. Commuters were also informed when services returned to normal.
