Delhi metro, as we know, is expanding at a phenomenal rate. New routes coming up every month, extensions and better facilities at stations are transforming the way we have been experiencing travelling. Thousands of people travel through the metro every day and with all the razzle dazzle, it is really important that security is not lax at any of the stations. Owing to the same the authorities have decided to deploy 5,000 CISF troops at various metro stations to make all metro routes safer than ever before.

The 5,000 CISF personnel will essentially be present at the metro stations to better guard the ever expanding metro rail system along with the increasing footfall. As of now, the manpower for security related issues is not short, but the authorities took this decision to prepare for the future.

In addition to that, there will also be a new post for a DIG (Deputy Inspector General), who will be required to manage and supervise not only the new CISF personnel, but the existing ones as well. This new chain of command should give way to better management of the entire security chain.

Currently, the Delhi metro makes use of a total of 9,000 security personnel who are situated at all 270 stations of the metros across the national capital. This figure includes adjoining cities of Noida, Ghaziabad and Faridabad. With the help of the new security men, we can be sure that safety will certainly be reinforced in the metro.

Infact, with a total of 12,000 CISF personnel, the Delhi metro will be more secure than even Delhi and Mumbai airports. Both of these airports have a force of 6,000 personnel. However, security at Delhi metro is not at par with these airports. At any rate, this is a step in the right direction and is something that was required at Delhi metro for a long time now.
