SAFETY FOR DELHI METRO PASSENGERS: Permanent railing& AUTOMATED DOORS on all the platforms

0 have signed. Let’s get to 100!


For the safety of our loved ones and ourselves as tax paying citizens of this country, I feel it is our Right to ask the Delhi government, Ministry of Urban Development and the DMRC authorities to provide adequate safety measures for the large number of metro commuters.

All the metro stations on the DMRC routes should be guarded with permanent railings or hard glass & automated doors which open only once the metro has reached the platform and halted. (for guidance, please study the metro platform models of Dubai)

All the metro stations on the DMRC routes should be guarded with permanent railings or hard glass & automated doors which open only once the metro has reached the platform and halted. (for guidance, please study the metro platform models of Dubai)

This will not only help prevent the jaywalkers, but Help Save Invaluable Lives by drastically reducing the platform accident & suicide rate that are on a rise ever since Delhi Metro started.

It is traumatic enough having to loose a close one because of an accident and even more so when there is a simple solution like creating a barrier along a few meters of distance, that could have helped save a precious life of the one we loved.
