The orders issued by state Chief Secretary Somesh Kumar said that the Metro Rail is permitted to resume operations from September 7 in a graded manner.

Officials said that an action plan is being prepared in consultation with the authorities mainly Police, Health and Metro Rail authorities to ensure safe journey of all passengers and the staff. The SOPs issued by the Centre to resume services will be strictly adhered. Maintaining social distance among the travelling passengers is the first big challenge before the Metro Rail to operate the services hassle-free, officials said.

The number of passengers travelling in each rail will be downsized by half of the total seat capacity. Initially, the services will be offered on a particular stretch and extend to other areas depending on the response from citizens.
