Delhi's Transport Minister Kailash Gehlot on Tuesday wrote to DMRC Managing Director Mangu Singh, asking him to ensure that city-state's transport minister is informed about any disruption in metro services.
"Fourthly, remedial steps should be taken. Lastly, details of all the break-downs of metro services since 2011 along with their reasons must be furnished," the minister's office further stated.
Metro train operations were disrupted due to an overhead electric cable fault between Chattarpur and Sultanpur on the Yellow line.
Two trains were stuck for close to one hour and thirty minutes on this stretch. The trains got stuck at 9.27 am in the morning and the evacuation process started at 9.45 am after a tweet made by a metro commuter.
The evacuation of the respective trains was completed by 11.10 am and 11.27 am.
The route measures almost 49 km and has a total of 37 stations. It connects Samaypur Badli in north Delhi to HUDA City Centre in Gurugram.
The stretch connects prominent areas such as Delhi University, New Delhi and Old Delhi Railway Stations, INA Market, AIIMS and Hauz Khas.
