The driverless metro service on the Pink Line corridor of Delhi Metro was launched on Thursday. Union Housing and Urban Affairs Minister Hardeep Singh Puri and Delhi Transport Minister Kailash Gehlot inaugurated Driverless Train Operation (DTO) on the 59-km-long Pink Line (Majlis Park to Shiv Vihar) of the Delhi Metro.

Now the fully automatic network of Delhi Metro has increased to about 97 km. It is the fourth largest DTO network in the world and the only DTO network in India. India has become one of the few countries in the world to have this facility. The DTO facility on the Magenta Line was introduced in the year 2020, with Delhi Metro entering an elite group of seven per cent of the world’s metros that operate a fully automated metro network.

From March 2018 to August 2021, metro services started in five phases on different sections on the Pink Line corridor. Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) has achieved a new success by making it driverless, just three months after the completion of the longest corridor of Delhi Metro. When the Metro services on the Magenta Line went driverless, on the first day, when passengers got information about it, some passengers got down at the middle stations and adopted other modes of transport.

The commencement of Metro services between Trilokpuri (Sanjay Lake) and Mayur Vihar Pocket-One was delayed due to land acquisition issues. The remaining part of the Pink Line was also started for passengers in August 2021. Earlier metro services between Majlis Park to Mayur Vihar Pocket-One and Shiv Vihar to Trilokpuri Sanjay Jheel were available at different ends.
