The Delhi Metropolitan Corporation (DMRC) has increased the number of train runs between Qutub Minar Station and HUDA City Center on the Yellow Line to cope with the influx of additional passengers due to maintenance work on the Delhi-Jaipur Highway (NH 48). between Rangpuri and Rajokri. The 500m section of the track has been closed since last week for 90 days due to construction work.

The yellow line connects Samaypur Badli in Delhi and HUDA City Center in Gurugram.

Two additional trains have also been brought into service, with a 33% increase in train runs, DMRC officials said. At the same time, the total number of trains running on this line will increase from 57 to 59, the administration said.

To accommodate the additional crowd, the DMRC increased the number of flights during peak times and increased train frequency from 3 minutes 27 seconds to 2 minutes 30 seconds during weekday peak hours.

In addition, all trains that previously stopped at Qutub Minar station will now run to HUDA City Center station, which will ease the crowd on the Yellow Line section towards Gurugram.

DMRC has also introduced additional facilities such as eight automated fare gates, 12 ticket vending machines, etc. at four Yellow Line stations – HUDA City Centre, IFFCO Chowk, MG Road and Sikanderpur.
