The Centre will examine Delhi Metro Rail Corporation's request for financial aid to run its trains, a top official of the Union Housing and Urban Affairs Ministry said on October 29.

Facing a financial crisis due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the DMRC had written to the Centre and the Delhi government for providing financial assistance to run its trains.

There were also reports that other state Metros were facing financial loss due to the coronavirus pandemic.

“We have got their (DMRC’s) letter and we have to address that for the whole country. We will consider this. This (DMRC's request) will be examined,” Ministry secretary Durga Shanker Mishra told reporters at a press conference when asked whether the government will help the DMRC.
