Since starting its operations in 2002, the trains introduced in the Delhi Metro have been operational for almost two decades now. With an estimated lifespan of 30 years, the DMRC has now given a mid-life upgrade to the trains that were introduced between 2002 and 2007. Refurbishments to the trains include new floorboards made out of fibre-composite, freshly painted interiors, upgraded electrical panels. New mobile/laptop charging points, CCTV and fire detection systems have made it to these older trains as well. Just like the newer models, the route maps inside the cabins have also been upgraded to LCD units from the older sticker-based system. The refurbished trains belong to DMRC’s first-batch of 70 four coach trains.
