Meanwhile, all the corridors of Delhi Metro are now operational while the timing of services will follow the pre-COVID-19 schedule of 6 am to 11 pm.

The Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) tweeted: "With the resumption of service on the Airport Express Line, all lines of the Delhi Metro network are now open! Remember to follow the guidelines when travelling."
