Delhi Metro or Mumbai Local? Long queues, overcrowding as DMRC face Technical Glitch in Yellow Line
On the morning of April 27th, Delhi Metro commuters faced difficulties as trains on the Yellow Line were running late due to technical issues. The Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) promptly released a statement informing passengers of the delay. The delay caused overcrowding on the trains, leading to chaos at Kashmiri Gate station, where the metro had to be vacated.
The technical issues on the Yellow Line had a domino effect on other lines as well. Commuters traveling on the Violet Line also experienced delays. Despite the disruption, passengers traveling on other lines breathed a sigh of relief as the trains on those routes were functioning normally.
