The Yellow Line snag a few days ago had brought the city to a standstill, after thousands were stuck inside two Metro trains for over an hour. The issue had led to trains running late and traffic jams across the city.

Days after a technical fault in the Delhi Metro’s Yellow Line led to chaos, services were impacted on a portion of the Violet Line on Saturday morning due to “waterlogging”.

Train services from Mandi House to Kashmere Gate were operated on a single line from 11.25 am to 11.50 am due to a minor signalling issue.

A statement from the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) read, “In the morning, some water-logging was also observed in the Kashmere Gate-Lal Quila section, due to which trains were moving at a restricted speed till 11.15 am.”

An official said that some minor seepage in the underground sections can occur occasionally “and the system is well equipped to handle such occurrences”.
