The Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) has not yet told how long people will be able to travel in the metro again, but has definitely shown a glimpse of how the metro will ride in the Corona era. The metro has made special preparations to ensure social distancing of passengers in coaches.
The lockdown remains in the country until May 31 to prevent the spread of Corona virus infection, which began on 25 March. While issuing the guidelines for Lockdown 4.0, the Ministry of Home Affairs had said that the metro service will be closed across the country by the end of the month.
DMRC has told through two photographs how the difference between passengers will be maintained when the metro service resumes. For this, stickers are being pasted on the seats, one seat will be kept empty between two passengers. The sticker reads ‘Don’t sit hair’.
DMRC shared two photos in a tweet, one before the Corona lockdown in which all the passengers are sitting close-by and another photo shows an employee sticking to the seat.

Earlier, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has allowed auto rickshaws, e-rickshaws and cycle rickshaws to run with a passenger. Kejriwal, while announcing the waiver of the restrictions, said, “Corona virus is going to live here.” We have to live our lives with Corona now. Lockdown may not be permanent. We have used lockdown to prepare ourselves. Hospital, beds, ventilators, PPE, testing kits etc. Now it’s time to start the economy. ”
