New Delhi: Udyog Bhawan metro station of the Delhi Metro will be developed into a hub of art and culture after National Museum and the Delhi Metro signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) on Thursday.

Press release from Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) said, “As per the agreement, the Udyog Bhawan metro station on the Jahangirpuri-HUDA City Centre (Yellow Line) corridor will be developed as the gateway to the National Museum. Art works and artifacts will be displayed at the concourse area (both paid and unpaid areas) of the station.”

“While National Museum will arrange, display as well as maintain the art works, artifacts etc, DMRC will provide the necessary space and other ancillary requirements such as cabling, wiring, civil work etc. The displays will also be periodically changed by National Museum so that the visitors to the station get to see new artifacts and art works from time to time,” it added.

The agreement was signed at the Metro Bhawan on Thursday between DMRC’s executive director (operations), Vikas Kumar, and National Museum director general Sanjiv Mittal in the presence of DMRC managing director Mangu Singh and other senior officials.

DMRC has associated with many other government bodies/organizations such as the culture ministry, Delhi Tourism, India Habitat Centre, the Indian Council of Historical Research as well as independent artists for setting up display panels, art works etc at the metro stations across the network.

This MoU is a continuation of the Delhi Metro’s efforts to utilize its premises for the promotion of Indian art and culture.
