New Delhi: As the crowd increasing constantly the Delhi Metro will be leasing trains to cater to the growing rush of passengers.

To meet the rush & run trains at increased frequency — particularly during peak hours, DMRC needs more trains. Till date, DMRC had only purchased trains — a time-consuming process that also needs substantial investment.

More Information:

  • The DMRC is now exploring the possibility of taking trains on lease instead of purchasing them & the Inderlok-Mundka (line 5) corridor will be the first section where the leased trains will be deployed.
  • DMRC is looking for companies that are capable of supplying trains and, if this new plan works, it will take more trains on lease for its other corridors.
  • Also, the leasing firm will have to maintain the metro trains
  • DMRC will pay rental charges (on per hour basis) depending on the trains’ availability.
  • At first, DMRC will take on lease 150 coaches, which will be converted into 25 six-coach train sets.
  • Currently, DMRC has deployed 23 trains on this corridor, out of which one is a 6-coach train & the rest are all 4-coach trains.
  • The present rolling stock on this corridor was procured from Bombardier & the firm that will provide trains on lease will have to follow the same specifications in the train as the existing ones.
  • A DMRC spokesperson said,”We are exploring this option and will further extend it to other corridors only if it proves to be financially viable.”
