New Delhi: The metro commuters forced to face extreme inconvenience due to regular faults in the Metro have a reason to rejoice. Now the fixing of technical faults will not take long as the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) has come out with a new technology which can detect the part of the train where the malfunction has occured. This will facilitate quick fixing of the problem.

The technology to be used for the first time in India will prevent the DMRC from further criticism besides putting an end to the problems of the commuters.

The seven simulators installed at Shastri Park Metro training Institute will be used for the maintenance of sub-systems of trains including brakes, air supply, door systems, traction systems; train air-conditions and control management system.

According to the DMRC Director (Rolling Stock) HS Bansal and Chief Public Relations Officer Anuj Dayal, the trouble shooting simulators used by DMRC staff can detect all flaws that occur in a metro train. They said, “Therefore we have decided to train officers and related staff in this method so that they can quickly diagnose the defects.”

The technique will be used on line number 2 and 3 / 4. They said, earlier the training was theoretical but now technical knowledge is being imparted so that the drivers do not commit any error while driving.

Metro to have eight coaches from June:  Keeping in mind the comfort of the increasing number of commuters during peak hours, The DMRC is preparing to increase the number of coaches from six to eight in metro trains. However, the third phase will continue to have six-coach trains.
