Call Drops and Network issues while travelling in Delhi Metro? Not anymore!
Great news for people travelling through Delhi Metro as the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) plans to put an end to the poor network connectivity woes of all passengers travelling through several routes of the metro network.
DMRC plans to end the call drop and poor network connectivity issues for good! How many times does it happen that you’re on your way to work and your boss calls, but the merciless metro network forces you to either call them another 3-4 times before giving up or pausing your commute in the middle to step out and make that one call. Who doesn’t hate that?
People face network issues in the metro all the time, especially the ones commuting through the newly commissioned Phase-3 routes on Magenta Line which conects Janakpuri West to Botanical Garden and Pink line which connects Majlis Park to Shiv Vihar. Commuters often struggle to get mobile connectivity and mostly where the metro line is underground.
The call drop issues are not new for Delhi Metro as commuters have been facing them since quite some time now, especially in the underground lines. DMRC is trying to tackle the issue by putting up network boosters at stations where the problems have been identified.
Speaking to a prominent news media company a senior DMRC official said that a team of around 300 people is working to install signal boosters on the routes and the issue may get resolved by the end of next month. The installation work for these boosters is being carried out during the night since it is not possible to do the same during the day (operational hours).
There are 15 underground stations on Magenta line and DMRC says that it has already rectified the issue at 10 stations.
Have you ever been running late to the airport because of the sheer number of bags you have? If your answer is yes, then IGI airport has got you covered. Now, in a new initiative by the DIAL (Delhi International Airport Ltd) you can have your stuff transported to the IGI airport directly from your place of stay.
Delhi International Airport Ltd., the operators of IGI airport have partnered up with a Bengaluru based company called CarterX. In fact, this facility is not limited to be availed by only those taking off from Delhi, it can also be used to get your luggage delivered to your residence when you touchdown at IGI.
What's the update?
In a bid to make travelling to and from IGI airport easier for passengers, DIAL has undertaken a partnership with CarterX to start a service where a commuter's luggage can be transported to and from the IGI airport directly from their place of residence. This, essentially, is a step towards making checking in to the airport a breeze.
Additionally, if you're short on time and are planning to take the direct metro link to the airport, this is a great way to ensure that you don't have to lug your stuff around.
To avail the service, you will have to pay a fee based on the number, weight and size of the bags. The fee will also take into account distance to and from the airport, meaning the prices are going to be dynamically triggered. At any rate, the base fare is ₹299, which goes up depending on the aforementioned factors. For every 5 kilograms over 20kgs, an additional ₹100 will be charged.
This is certainly one of the most passenger forward moves we have seen DIAL take. The IGI airport is at par with the best airports in the world and this is something that should take its rating all the way up. DIAL and CarterX have both stated that with this service, they aim to cover the entirety of Delhi, including neighbouring states- Haryana, Uttar Pradesh and Rajasthan.
