The Delhi Metro on Sunday said it will be adding eight more trains to its existing network from Monday to cater to the increased ridership during peak hours.

According to the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC), every year new commuters join the network in August-September and the decision to increase the number of trains was taken to offer commuters respite during rush hour.

Therefore, two trains each will be added to the Yellow Line, Blue Line, and Violet Line, while one each will pressed into service on the Red Line and Green Line.

“Keeping in view the expected increase in ridership, a study was carried out to prepare an operations plan to make sure that sufficient services were available for the commuters,” the DMRC said in a statement.

“The trains will be added during the peak operational hours and the arrangement will continue for two months. The same may be continued later also depending on the requirement,” it added.

The DMRC increased the number of coaches from 640 to 1,076 — an increase of almost 70 percent — across all networks between 2010 and 2014 in the wake of passenger load of about 25 lakh per day.

All four-coach trains on the “busiest” lines — Yellow Line (HUDA City Centre to Jahangirpuri), and Blue Line (Dwarka Sector 21 to NOIDA City Centre, and Yamuna Bank to Vaishali) — have been converted into 6 and 8-coach trains.
