Metro train services, closed since March 23, will resume in Calcutta from Monday.

The services will be suspended on Sundays for now, barring September 13 when a special service with 66 trains will be run for NEET.

“We will run 110 trains (55 in each direction) daily,” general manager Manoj Joshi said on Thursday. Metro used to run 288 trains every weekday before the lockdown.

The first and last trains will leave the terminal stations at 8am and 7pm.

Smart-card users alone can board the trains. To enter a station, a commuter needs a “QR code-based colour-coded e-pass”, to be generated from the URL http//pathadisha.com/metro.
