The objective of this staggered Metro services plan on Monday is aimed at facilitating all stakeholders with effectiveness and to promote ‘social distancing’ which is very much required to contain the spread of Coronavirus, added the statement. In the first couple of hours ( 6 AM to 8 AM), DMRC’s priority is to ensure that the people involved in providing the essential services, as notified by the Government, reach their destinations with ease while maintaining norms of ‘social distancing’ in Metro premises. In the next two hours (8 AM to 10 AM), the objective is to facilitate people for whom it is essential and unavoidable to go to their destinations. DMRC again appeals and advises the general public not to panic and stay at home and use the Metro only when it is really essential and unavoidable, stated the DMRC. In the prevalent scenario where authorities have shut malls, restaurants, major markets etc. to prevent the spread of the virus, it is the responsibility of our passengers also to co-operate with DMRC and help fight Coronavirus collectively. These modified Metro services are applicable for this Monday only. If there is any further requirement to continue the same pattern in the larger public interest, the same shall be informed accordingly, added the DMRC.
