As per extant guidelines, 100 per cent sitting is allowed in metro trains. However, no standing passengers are allowed in the trains. “Therefore, entry to the trains and stations shall continue to remain highly restrictive as only limited number of passengers (50 only) per coach are allowed,” the statement added.

The statement has advised the travellers that if absolutely essential, they should keep extra time during commuting by Metro as entry shall still continue to be regulated to ensure compliance with the guidelines which may result in queues/ waiting outside stations.
