Great news for Delhi Metro commuters! Soon, several new Delhi Metro coaches will be added across the network, easing traffic and adding to the comfort of passengers.

A DMRC spokesperson told Financial Express Online that all metro trains on the three older corridors will be converted into eight coach sets by the year 2021 in order to accommodate more number of passengers.
