Puri, Gahlot inaugurate Delhi's second driverless Metro on Pink Line

NEW DELHI, Nov 26: Delhi's second driverless Metro train operation was inaugurated on the Pink Line on Thursday. Union Minister of Housing and Urban Affairs Hardeep Singh Puri and Delhi Transport Minister Kailash Gahlot flagged off the 'driverless train' on the 57-km Majlis Park-Shiv Vihar Pink Line via video.

"In a proud moment for people of Delhi & India’s technological prowess in urban connectivity, I was very happy to inaugurate Unattended Train Operations on the Pink Line of the Delhi Metro with Delhi Minister Sh @kgahlot Ji & senior officials of @MoHUA_India & @OfficialDMRC," Puri tweeted.

"With this Delhi Metro becomes one of the largest driverless metro networks in the world after Prime Minister Narendra Modi launched the first driverless train operations of the Delhi Metro in December 2020, when he flagged off the driverless operations," he said.

Gahlot said, “This is a milestone. Despite all the difficulties, the DMRC has completed the work. It will ensure passenger safety and minimise chances of human errors.”

Dubai, Singapore, Shanghai, Vancouver and Kuala Lumpur are among the few cities that have driverless Metro train services. With this, the Delhi Metro’s fully automated network is of 97 km, which is the 4th largest in the world and the only DTO network in India.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi inaugurated India's first-ever driverless train on Delhi Metro's Magenta Line on December 28, 2020.
