The metro train has been a popular mode of transport for commuters across Delhi, and now Delhi metro will introduce driver-less trains, which come with a lot more to make travelling through the city more comfortable.
DMRC Managing Director Mangu Singh said,
“Initially, the train will be run by a driver for one year on trial basis. Only after successfully conducting the trial, it will be fully automated. Unless we are 100 percent sure, we won’t start with driver-less trains.”

The trial runs will start in July but driverless operations will start in 2017. The trains have been acquired from a Korea-based firm and are being assembled in India.
