Delhi Metro Changes Timings for G-20 Summit
Preparations are underway for the G-20 summit in Delhi, and Delhi Metro has made changes to its train timings in anticipation of the event. The Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) has announced that from 8 to 10 September, the metro train service will start from 4 am on all lines.
Changes in Metro Services
During the G-20 summit, the Supreme Court Metro Station will not be operational on 9th and 10th September. However, all other metro stations will remain open for common citizens. This decision has been taken to prioritize security measures.
Until 6 am, all Delhi Metro trains will run at an interval of 30 minutes. After 6 am, metro services will resume their normal schedule on all lines. The Delhi Police Commissioner, Sanjay Arora, had written a letter to the DMRC’s Managing Director, Vikas Kumar, requesting the early start of metro services to facilitate the movement of security personnel deployed during the summit.
In addition, the metro service at the Supreme Court metro station will be affected on September 9 and 10. However, if deemed necessary by security agencies, services may also be altered at other metro stations. Parking facilities will be available as usual at all metro stations except for three stations in the New Delhi district – Supreme Court, Patel Chowk, and Ram Krishna Ashram Marg – between 4 am on September 8 and 12 noon on September 11.
Cooperation from Passengers
In light of the G-20 Summit, Delhi Metro has appealed to passengers to cooperate with the normal operation of metro services. Passengers are requested to follow all necessary guidelines and instructions provided by the authorities.
The DMRC has also been requested to operate the Delhi Metro from 4 am during this period to ensure that commuters do not face any inconvenience.

As per the traffic advisory issued by Delhi Police, online delivery services will only be allowed for essential services during the three-day period. Food delivery platforms like Swiggy and Domino’s will not be permitted in New Delhi.
