The Delhi Police, in preparation for the high-level G20 Summit taking place at the Bharat Mandapam in Pragati Maidan, New Delhi from September 9 to 10, have issued an advisory in coordination with the Delhi Metro. During this period, several metro stations, including Dhula Kuan, Khan Market, Janpath, Supreme Court, and Bhikaji Cama Place, have been identified as sensitive locations. The entry and exit gates of these stations will be closed from September 8 to 10 to ensure comprehensive security measures.

However, to minimize disruption for commuters, some stations will still have one or two gates open for passenger use, while other routes will operate normally. The closure of certain metro station gates aligns with the VVIPs route and the Summit venue’s security requirements.

Notably, traffic restrictions will be in effect from the night of September 7 to September 11, coinciding with the G20 Summit. Additionally, passengers traveling to Indira Gandhi International Airport (IGIA) during this period are advised to use the Metro for their convenience.

To accommodate the anticipated increase in passenger numbers due to the G20 Summit, the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) has introduced ‘Tourist Smart Cards’ available at dedicated counters in 36 metro stations. These cards come in two categories, with one-day and three-day validity options, offering unlimited rides within the metro network. The one-day card costs ₹200, while the three-day card is priced at ₹500, which includes a refundable security deposit of ₹50.

Overall, these measures have been put in place to ensure the smooth functioning of the G20 Summit and to provide alternative transportation options for travelers during this period.
