We are conducting regular awareness exercises and safety drills for our staff, who are our first line of interaction with commuters every day. Despite the outbreak of this pandemic, we are doing our best to operate regular services to avoid inconvenience and at the same time we are committed to taking all foolproof measures to make sure that the commuters are safe.

It is one of the deadly crises the mankind has been facing since World War II and concerted efforts are required to tackle the outbreak. HMRL leaves no stone unturned to dedicate all the resources at its disposal to raise awareness and also to implement practical strategies to keep the metro infrastructure sterile at all times and to keep the novel Coronavirus at buy. We appeal to one and all, to be part of the solution and let’s do our best to restore the normal and healthy living of our society.
