During peak hours, metro trains are scheduled to run every 7.5 minutes until they reach Ramwadi. In non-peak hours, trains will run every 10 minutes. Even on the recently extended route, the Maharashtra Metro Rail Corporation Limited (Maha Metro) has chosen to maintain the current train frequency.

The Commissioner of Metro Rail Safety (CMRS) is awaiting final certification for the Metro’s Ruby Hall to Ramwadi section. Following the completion of these inspections last month, the Maha Metro was requested to carry out a few compliance requirements.

Maha Metro officials stated that they made the decision to continue operating the trains at the current frequency after studying the Ruby Hall to Ramwadi stretch. However, depending on feedback received after operations start, the number of trips may increase during peak hours. To fulfill the requirements, the Metro has extra rakes available.

It is anticipated that Prime Minister Narendra Modi will introduce the stretch. The PM may visit the city on Monday, according to sources in the city’s political circles, though the details of the tour are still being worked out.

According to a Maha Metro official, a compliance report has been submitted to the CMRS, and approval could come at any time. They have also given the CMRS pertinent information and will supply more details as needed. Once Maha Metro receives the certification, it will notify the state government. The decision about the route’s opening will be made by the state.

Regular travellers in the Nagar Road region, however, asserted that Maha Metro and the state government ought not to postpone the start of service on the route. A Metro commuter stated that given how much the project has already been delayed, he anticipates operations starting as soon as possible. The commuters will suffer if there are any more delays.
