8-coach Metro trains in Delhi from December

SAVLI, GUJARAT: With its ridership increasing, crowding in Delhi Metro trains has become a problem. Come December and Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) will introduce eight-coach trains on those corridors that have a higher ridership. On Tuesday, it received the 600th MOVIA car from Bombardier at Savli in Gujarat.

Manufactured at Bombardier’s facility in Savli, the new trains will complement the existing six-coach train fleet and hopefully address the problem of overcrowding, said DMRC managing director Mangu Singh. He was accompanied by urban development secretary Sudhir Krishna while taking the delivery of the car.
