Technical issues affected metro services between Shankar Vihar and Terminal 1 IGI Airport in New Delhi, DMRC officials said on Tuesday. The 34.2-km Magenta Line connects Botanical Garden and Janakpuri West stations.

"Due to some technical issues, services between Shankar Vihar and Terminal 1 IGI Airport have been affected and the train is being run at restricted speed in this stretch," a senior DMRC official said. Due to this, there was bunching of trains, affecting services in rest of the corridor too, he said. A restricted speed is about 30 kmph, and trains' regular plying speed is about 40 kmph, the official said.
