Delhi Metro will commence operations from September 7, in a graded manner, after a gap of more than five months. The staggered opening of the services will start from some stations for a limited period of time.
However, the frequency of the trains will be the same as it was before March 22, an official statement said adding that the frequency may be increased or decreased as per requirement.
The stoppage time of the train at a particular station has been nearly doubled, which essentially means that the trips will be longer than usual.
Trains will not stop at stations falling in the containment zone and such stations will remain closed for public.
Similarly, some of the stations may be skipped if social distancing is not adhered to by the passengers.
In the first stage of opening from September 7 to September 10, the services will be from 7 am to 11 am and 4 pm to 8 pm.
In Stage-II, from September 11, the services will be from 7 am to 1 pm and 4 pm to 10 pm.
From September 12 onwards, services on lines will be available throughout the day i.e. 6 am to 11 pm.
