Delhi Metro Rail Corporation, which operates the metro network in the national capital region (NCR), makes use of energy-efficient infrastructural systems and contributes towards the reduction in carbon emission. As part of this process, the following major activities will be taken up for indigenous development:

  • Broken Rail Detection System
  • Theft Intrusion Detection System
  • Concrete Health Monitoring System
  • Remote Health Monitoring of Point Machines
  • Multi-Section Digital Axle Counter (MSDAC)
  • MSDAC with ATP to replace older technologies

A senior Delhi Metro official stated that the development and application of indigenous technologies will boost value-addition in Delhi Metro operations, to efficiently meet reliability and punctuality of rail systems.
