New Delhi: Due to failure of grid, on Tuesday large part of north and east India faced a power cut. The Northern Grid had collapsed on Monday, leading to power outages across seven states, including the national capital, and power could be restored only by afternoon.
Services on all six lines of Delhi Metro were disrupted because of tripping of power supply in the northern power grid for the second day on Tuesday.
"Due to northern grid failure, all train services have been suspended and entry to all stations stopped. The trains, which are plying right now, are being brought to the nearest station for evacuation," a Delhi Metro official said.
The Delhi Metro normally operates over 2,700 trips a day, covering about 70,000 km and carrying around 1.8 million passengers on week days.
