Delhi Metro passengers, largely office-goers, on Thursday, had faced inconvenience when services on its Blue Line were delayed for over two hours due to a technical snag. The Blue Line connects Dwarka Sector-21 in Delhi to Noida Electronic City, along with a branch line to Vaishali.

This was the second time in the week when the entire Blue Line had been impacted by a glitch. On June 6, a large number of commuters on the Blue Line had faced hardship as services across the corridor were impacted for nearly an hour-and-a-half due to a technical snag caused by a bird hit.
