On 17 May 2016, Union Urban Development Minister M. Venkaiah Naidu and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal flagged off the trial run of the first-of-its-kind driverless Metro train. The trial run commenced from the Mukundpur depot of Delhi Metro and ended at Majalis Park Metro Station on the Majlis Park-Shiv Vihar corridor of phase III. The trains were initially run by train operators for around a year, followed by switching over to unmanned train operations.
The introduction of the Metro Rail Service in Delhi has changed the face of transportation in the National Capital Territory of India. The Metro has been specifically designed keeping in mind the comforts of the passengers and the traffic on the road. The Metro Rail Service in Delhi has been appreciated all over the world. The metro railway network has covered almost the entire city and with continuous endeavours towards expansion, most of the neighbouring areas and suburbs will also be covered by the metro railway by the end of 2021.
The Metro Rail Service has proved to be a boon for the people of the Union Territory. The best thing that has happened since the introduction of the Delhi Metro is the reduction in traffic and pollution levels in Delhi. The expansion plans of the Delhi Metro had started especially for the 2010 Commonwealth Games.
Although the Delhi Metro is not the first metro railway in India, it can be said to be the first of its kind in the country. Constructed with utmost architectural brilliance and state-of-the-art facilities, the Delhi Metro is very different from the other metro rails in the world. Apart from being technologically sound, the major aspect that has been given prime importance within the Delhi Metro is security.
The Delhi Metro is being constructed in phases. Most of the routes under Phase I were completed before 2010. The second phase, known as Phase II, covered 85 stations. It was also successfully completed by the end of 2010. The other projects in pipeline are Phase III, IV, and V, which are expected to be completely ready by the end of 2018, 2023, and 2031 respectively.
The Delhi Metro stations have small kiosks that provide food and beverages to the commuters. Some stations like Rajiv Chowk, Kashmere Gate, etc., have popular food outlets like McDonald’s, Nirula's, Cafe Coffee Day, etc. IRCTC has also opened a set of food kiosks that serve passengers with snacks and delicacies at reasonable rates. The kiosks (Food Tracks) offer light snacks and mini meals.
In the interim budget of the 2017-18 fiscal year, it was proposed that DMRC would receive a budgetary support of Rs. 1,156 Crores.
In the interim budget of the 2014-15 fiscal year, DMRC received a budgetary support of Rs. 3,470.16 Crores and Rs. 838.07 Crores as equity.
In the 2013-14 fiscal year, DMRC was granted Rs. 2484.18 Crores as the budgetary support and Rs. 650 Crores as part of equity investment.
To provide better services to its commuters, the Delhi Metro has taken certain initiatives. These are listed below:
Besides the existing eight-coach trains plying between Jahangirpuri and HUDA City Centre, more such trains would be made operational. This has been particularly proposed/ done because during the rush hours in the morning and evenings, the Rajiv Chowk Metro Station gets two out of three trains having eight coaches.
Additional trips on the route between Kashmere Gate and Gurgaon (Gurugram) between 9 a.m. and 10 a.m. have been introduced. Similarly, additional trains have been introduced on the Janakpuri West to Vaishali route and the Noida City Centre to Dwarka Sec-21 route, respectively.

Delhi Metro Ranked Second Among 18 Metro Systems in the World
In an online survey conducted by the global metro benchmarking groups, the Nova Group of Metros and Community of Metros (CoMET), Delhi Metro has been ranked second in terms of overall customer satisfaction among the 18 international metro systems. As per media reports, more than 41,000 people gave their feedback for the online survey conducted worldwide through social media and online websites. According to the reports, the commuters of the Delhi Metro rated ‘crowding’ and ‘reliability’ as some of the priority areas. A spokesperson from the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) said that the survey was conducted as per the European Norm 13816 and few of the areas covered were accessibility, ease of use, availability, information prior to travel, customer care, etc.
Highest Height Achieved by Delhi Metro - Dhaula Kuan
A major feat has been achieved by the Delhi Metro as the Delhi Metro trains crossing Dhaula Kuan will operate at a height of 23.6 metre. This has surpassed the height of Karkardooma, where the metro trains operate at a height of 19 metre. For avoiding any kind of traffic disruption on the Airport line, the launching operation above it will be done from 12.30 a.m. to 4 a.m., that is, the non-operating hours. A diversion road has also being constructed to avoid any kind of inconvenience to the commuters. The viaduct is scheduled to be completed by the end of October 2014. The elevated viaducts of the Phase III surmount the two existing phases of metro corridors at four other locations besides Dhaula Kuan. The four other locations are Anand Vihar, Mayur Vihar, Netaji Subhash Place and Karkardooma.
In an impressive development, the DMRC has achieved what can be aptly termed as a marvel of engineering. The Majlis Park-Shiv Vihar corridor, under construction as part of the Phase III project, now crosses the existing Vaishali-Dwarka line at a height of 21 metres above ground, with 10 metres of clearing. According to media reports, several such crossover lines will be constructed during this phase.
The Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) has launched a smartphone application to help users gain Delhi Metro-related information easily. The users of smartphones can receive information through GPS as the application works on both iPhones as well as Android smartphones with Internet or GPRS access. The application can also be downloaded from the official website (www.delhimetrorail.com) of DMRC.

The application is said to have a user-friendly interface to ensure easy navigation and has all major options on the home screen.
Delhi Metro launches Online Smart Card Recharge Facility
The Delhi Metro Rail Corporation has launched an online recharge facility of Metro smart cards. This provision will allow the commuters to recharge their smart cards through their credit/debit cards. The top-up can be easily done by visiting the following links: www.delhimetrorail.com or www.dmrcsmartcard.com.

The minimum transaction amount is Rs. 100 and the maximum recharge amount allowed is Rs. 1000 per card. This facility will not only allow the commuters to avoid unnecessary queues but will also reduce cash transactions at the ticket counters.
