New Delhi: Publicity and 'Delhi Darshan' will go hand in hand. This will be made possible with the efforts of Delhi Metro Rail Corporation. After Bookmarks, Ludo game, tokens and coffee table books introduced to boost the popularity of Delhi Metro, the latest in the array of DMRC is the photo postcard.

A unique collection of ‘Photographs of Delhi Metro’ featuring its trains, stations and its surroundings will be introduced. The new photo collection comes in a set of ten quality post card format capturing Delhi Metro from different angles.

The rare pictures on the postcards will serve as souvenir and can be taken to home by the commuters and the tourists. The photo postcards will be available from Tuesday at the Metro Museum at Patel Chowk station and will cost Rs 90. 

The postcards will also end the grievances of the commuters for not being allowed to capture the images while travelling in Metro. Notably, taking photographs in Metro train and the premises is prohibited.

The postcards have the images of the Metro journey apart from the format pictures showing the Delhi Metro from Karol Bagh, Lotus Temple, Idol of Hanuman, which were never experienced or observed by a common man.

The DMRC, since its inception has been issuing several souvenirs - the first being the Metro token. It was followed by coffee table book which had few takers because of its high price. The other souvenirs which were popular amongst the masses include toy train, snake & ladder and ludo game. All these items are available at the souvenir shop at the Metro museum.
