Slide 1: DMRC Delhi Metro Rail Corporation Introduction: Introduction Delhi Metro is being built and operated by the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation Limited (DMRC). The Delhi Metro (Hindi - दिल्ली मेट्रो Dillī Meṭro) is a rapid transit system serving Delhi, Gurgaon, Noida and Ghaziabad in the National Capital Region of India As of November 2010, DMRC operates around 2,700 trips daily between 6:00 and 23:00 running with an interval of 2.5 minutes between trains at peak frequency. The trains are mainly of four coaches, but due to increase in passengers numbers, six-coach trains are also added on red line (Dilshad Garden to Rithala), Yellow Line (Jahangirpuri to HUDA city centre), Blue Line (Dwarka sec -21 to Vaishali/NOIDA city centre) on the network . With first coach reserved for ladies only. History: History The Government of India and the Government of Delhi jointly set up a company called the DMRC on 5 Mar 1995 . Physical construction work on the Delhi Metro started on 1 Oct 1998 . The first line opened on 24 Dec 2002 and the entire Phase I of the project was completed in December 2005 . Metro Electricity: Metro Electricity Total Power required for running trains with modern coaches on both the corridors is estimated to be 75 MW by the year 2005 This power will be used for running trains including auxiliary loads such as lifts, escalators, lighting, ventilation and air conditioning etc. In addition 45 MW power would be required to meet the loads for new commercial complexes planned to be Slide 5: built over and around MRTS stations. The power (75 MW) required to operate the trains in the MRTS corridors constitutes about 3% of the total peak hours requirement presently estimated to be 2600 MW for Delhi Area. , all the trains will also have modern Ni-Cd Batteries to continue to provide lighting and air conditioning even when the train is stopped in event of complete power failure Slide 6: For Rail Corridor it has been planned to avail power from NTPC Thermal Power Station at three MRTS receiving stations through 400 kV, 220 kV & 66 kV Extra High Voltage Transmission Network. In the event of failure of one source, power can be fed at 25 KV side throughout the section from the other two sources Ridership : Ridership Delhi Metro recorded the highest ever ridership figure of 18, 30,944 on 01st August 2011, which surpassed the earlier record set just last Monday on 25th July, when 17, 71,668 people traveled by the Metro. Currently, DMRC has a pool of 200 train sets with 69 of these being six coach formations. At present; the Delhi Metro is operational on six lines where more than 2500 train trips are made each day traversing over 69000 KMs in a day. With Phase-III of the network expected to cover about 108 kilometers, the Delhi Metro network will become 295 kilometers by 2016 making it one of the fastest expanding Metro networks in the world carrying about 4 million (40 lakh) passengers. Telecommunication: Telecommunication Telecommunication is the transmission of messages over significant distances for the purpose of communication. A revolution in telecommunications into wireless communications began in the first decade of the 20th Century Signaling: Signaling Cab signalling is a railroad safety system that communicates track status information to the train cab. Automatic Train Control (ATC can also) be used with Automatic train Operation(ATO). There are several implementations and versions of ATC, and each is different Digital ATC is a digitized form of Automatic Train Control in use on a few JR lines in Japan. Ticketing: Ticketing Delhi Metro commuters have three choices for ticket purchase RFID tokens are valid only for a single journey on the day of purchase and the value depends on the distance travelled Travel cards, which are most convenient for frequent commuters, are valid for one year Tourist cards can be used for unlimited travel on the Delhi Metro network over short periods of time. There are two kinds of tourist cards — with validities of one and three days respectively. Metro Project: Metro Project As of July 14, 2011, the whole of Phase-I and parts of Phase-II are complete, with the network comprising six lines with 140 metro stations and a total length of 189.7 km (117.9 mi). 2021 promise: Access to a Metro in city every 0.5km (Delhi Metro Phase III and IV) : 2021 promise: Access to a Metro in city every 0.5km (Delhi Metro Phase III and IV) After completion of Phase II of construction by the end of this month, Delhi Metro network will cover an impressive 190km in the capital. But those who haven't been included in the Metro map needn't worry. With two more phases already in the pipeline, the Metro masterplan for 2021 envisages bringing the Metro within half a kilometre reach of every Delhiite . The next phase of construction, Phase III, will add another 69.57km of Metro through six new corridors. The corridors include • 25.66-km line from Anand Vihar to Dhaula Kuan of which 12.52km will run underground, • 12.40-km line from Mukundpur to Rajouri Garden of which 6.58km will be underground, • 9.64-km line from Ashok Park to Delhi Gate of which 5.28km will be underground, • fully underground section from Central Secretariat to Red Fort (6.8km) • elevated extension of the existing Line 2 from Jehangirpuri to Badli (3.43km). • A sixth section (11.64km) is proposed from the existing Metro station at Noida Sector 18 to Malviya Nagar via Kalindi Kunj .
