Any thoughts on using the Delhi Metro? Be grateful to hear from anyone who has done so.

I used Delhi metro (from Kasmere Gate ISBT to Connaught Place) twice only on insistence of my friend who was on a tight budget. I was pleased to see new shining coaches and stations, they had deserted look - Delhiites are not used to them. The ticket's price was cheap and the level of maintenance was high, unusually for India. I will post one of the fotos I took there (though it seem making fotos is illegal in metro as in many many places in India).
The one drawback of using Delhi metro - tightest security, first time I came with a bag - it was tortuously slowly thoroughly checked by armies of boring policemen, that's why my advice - do not come to metro with full bags or backpack if you feel uncomfortable with checking.

deserted look??? Delhities are not used to metro

at what time did u visit Metro??...metro are running perfectly, even attracting a lot of crowd on weekends who are mere "tourists" for metro, lots of delhities board metro on saturdays and sundays along with their family and relatives/friends, who are coming from outside of delhi, just to have a taste of it.


Yes, security is quite tight on Metro stations due to London Metro incident.
