A group of 25 women were given a detailed tour of the Central Secretariat Metro station on Saturday. They were taken to the station control rooms and the technical rooms, according to DMRC. “They were explained in detail about various aspects of Metro functioning, such as Automatic Fare Collection (AFC), CCTVs, public address systems and tunnel ventilation,” Anuj Dayal, chief spokesperson, Delhi Metro, said.
“The visit also inaugurated DMRC’s ‘Know Your Metro’ campaign as part of which Delhi Metro will invite a group of commuters once every month and apprise them about the functioning of the Metro system, so that commuters remain aware about the details of Metro functioning, including its emergency and disaster management mechanisms,” Dayal said.
Meanwhile, CISF on Saturday said it will not allow drunk passengers who are “totally out of their senses” to travel in Delhi Metro trains. While rejecting suggestions that by refusing absolutely drunk passengers on the Metro, it was encouraging drink driving, CISF chief Arvind Ranjan said commuters who have a friend with them or who are “moderately or safely drunk” will not be restricted from travelling in Delhi Metro.
“We are absolutely clear on our policy of not allowing a category of passengers who consume alcohol to board Delhi Metro. Someone who is completely out of his or her senses will not be allowed as they can be harmful to themselves and also their co-passengers,” Ranjan said.
“Our personnel are trained in passenger profiling and once they decide that a drunk passenger is safe to travel in Delhi Metro, he or she is always allowed to proceed further after security checks,” he said.
