Kolkata: Kolkata Metro is set to extend its services on weekends while also increasing the number of rakes travelling between North 24 Parganas district's Noapara and Dumdum from July 1, a circular issued by the Metro Railway authority said on Thursday.
As many as 236 metro rakes (118 pairs) will run between the two terminal stations — Dumdum and Kavi Subhash — on Saturdays, 12 more than the current number. A total number of 124 rakes (62 pairs) will be at service on Sundays instead of 110 rakes at present, the circular said.
more trains between the Dumdum and Noapara stations will be added on weekdays. At least seven will be added on Saturdays to manage the increasing number of commuters in the metro. Nine more trains will be added on Sundays, according to the circular.
The metro services on Sundays will also start at 9 a.m. instead of 9.50 a.m.
Currently, 284 (142 pairs) rakes are at service in the Dumdum-Kavi Subhash route on weekdays.
Earlier, West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee alleged that the Union Rail Ministry had not created any provision for at least three extensions of the Kolkata Metro rail in the Budget.
A nominal budgetary provision has been made for ongoing works on Kolkata’s East-West Metro line forcing works to grind to a halt, Banerjee said.


ONLY COVID-19 Specials are running.
As Corona cases are increasing rapidly, Members are advised to TAKE extra CARE these days.
1. AVOID going outdoors even if lockdown is easing.
2. ALWAYS wear a MASK when OUTDOORS.
3. Wash hands frequently. Do NOT touch your face.

    These days, every other day, we are getting requests from members to allow email login to their FB-based IRI account. 10 years ago, we had given the option for users to login through FaceBook - in retrospect, this was a mistake. These days, apparently, users are quitting FaceBook in droves because...
