The Reliance group’s Delhi Airport Metro Express Private Limited (DAMEPL) has decided to stop operating the city airport metro line from the night of June 30.

The DMRC on Friday held a meeting with its board of directors to discuss the letter from DAMEPL and concluded that the notice given by the DAMEPL is in violation of the ‘concession agreement’ between the operator and the DMRC as well as the the ongoing arbitration proceedings. The board decided to reject the notice and call upon the DAMEPL to continue the operations of the line in terms of the concession agreement.

In case they refuse to continue operations the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) may take over operations of the city airport metro line, Urban Development Secretary Sudhir Krishna, who is also the DMRC chairman,  said. “If they do not do so, the DMRC shall step in and operate the line in larger public interest,” Krishna said.
