Delhi Metro takes day off, practices social distancing as country goes under Janta Curfew

India observed Janta Curfew on March 22 in a bid to contain the spread of Coronavirus pandemic which has now infected 391 and killed seven people across the nation. The self-imposed curfew led to closed stores and empty streets bringing the whole nation to a standstill. It also proved to be beneficiary for the staff of Delhi Metro who got a rare rest day from their otherwise hectic schedules. 

The rare holiday

On March 22, DMRC took to twitter to share a picture which showed two trains parked at a distance. Along with the post, metro operators wrote that it was day wherein they were "resting" and "social distancing" themselves.
