A DMRC official told Financial Express Online that the mobile network issues in the Delhi Metro will be rectified by the end of next month i.e. February.
Nearly 300 employees have been deployed to pace up the process. Boosters are being installed in underground metro stations, particularly on Delhi Metro’s Pink Line and Magenta Line, where most of the commuters face the mobile signal problem.
