Delhi Metro Allows Passengers To Carry 2 Sealed Liquor Bottles On Trains :- Carrying of alcohol was banned in the Delhi Metro till recently except on the Airport Express Line.
Delhi Metro has become a lifeline of the city in 20 years and is regarded as one of the most convenient means of transportation. The Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) recently announced that passengers commuting by the trains can now carry two sealed bottles of alcohol. However, drinking of alcohol inside metro premises is still strictly prohibited.
This decision came after a committee comprising officials from Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) and DMRC reviewed the earlier order where carrying alcohol was prohibited in the trains except on the Airport Express Line, as per news agency PTI.
“However, subsequently, a committee comprising officials from the CISF and DMRC have reviewed the list and as per the revised list, two sealed bottles of alcohol per person is allowed to be carried on the Delhi Metro at par with the provisions on the Airport Express Line,” it said.
A Twitter user had also asked the officials if he could carry alcohol on the Metro who was travelling on the Blue Line which connects Dwarka Sector 21 and Noida Electronic City. To which DMRC replied, “Hi. Yes 2 sealed bottles of alcohol is allowed in Delhi Metro.”
In the event that a passenger is discovered acting indecently while intoxicated, officials indicated that appropriate legal action will be taken against them.
