Commuters travelling on Delhi Metro's Blue Line today faced issues as trains were moving at a slow pace between Rajiv Chowk and Rajendra Place. The movement of the trains was slow since early morning peak hours due to some technical snag.

"Slow movement of trains from Rajiv Chowk to Rajendra Place. Normal service on all other lines," The Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) had tweeted.

The issue is not resolved till now as the DMRC has said the movement will remained affected through the day. "Trains will continue to run with slow speed from Karol Bagh to Rajendra Place as maintenance is needed for track in this section, which will be carried out after service hours. We regret the inconvenience caused. Please allow for extra time in your commute." DMRC tweeted.

The snag has slowed down the movement of trains since morning between these two stations on the Blue Line. The Blue Line is one of the busiest of all the lines on the Delhi Metro network, ferrying scores of passengers to and from Delhi and neighbouring Noida and Vaishali in Uttar Pradesh.

DMRC had on Friday closed the entry and exit gates of Rajiv Chowk, Kashmere Gate, Central Secretariat, Janpath, Mandi House, Pragati Maidan, Khan Market, Dilshad Garden, Shiv Vihar and Johri Enclave on the instructions of security agencies.Also, Jama Masjid, Delhi Gate, Jaffrabad, Maujpur-Babarpur, and Jamia Millia Islamia metro stations were closed for some time.

The Act seeks to grants citizenship to Hindus, Sikhs, Jains, Parsis, Buddhists and Christians fleeing religious persecution from Pakistan, Afghanistan, and Bangladesh who entered India on or before December 31, 2014.
