Currently, both six-coach and eight-coach trains ply on these three lines. While there are 39 six-coach trains on Red Line (Line 1), there are 12 and nine six-coach trains on Yellow (Line 2) and Blue Line (Line 3/4) respectively, said DMRC spokesperson Anuj Dayal.

In this regard, the DMRC is procuring 120 coaches and the conversion is likely to be completed by March 2021 in a phased manner, Dayal added.

Adding eight-coach trains would be a boon for passengers as they have to jostle for space especially during peak-hour times. It will also help to clear the rush at stations.

The platforms of the stations on Red, Yellow and Blue Lines have been built to house the eight-coach trains. Currently, the Delhi Metro spans nearly 350 km, having over 250 metro stations and nine colour-coded lines.
