In the early hours of this morning, commuters on Bengaluru's metro system found themselves in a challenging situation as a sudden technical glitch on the Purple line brought train services to a halt between MG Road and Baiyappanahalli stations.

Passengers waiting at various metro stations along the route were left stranded as the Bengaluru Metro Rail Corporation Limited (BMRCL) is working to address the technical problem. BMRCL has assured commuters that they are committed to resolving the issue promptly and expects to have the metro service back on track within the next hour.

The disruption has led to a significant variation in metro train services along the Purple Line, with the interruption in service expected to last up to one hour. Currently, the operational train services are limited to the stretch between MG Road and Challaghatta, while the section from Baiyappanahalli to Whitefield (Kadugodi) is temporarily unavailable.

BMRCL staff is actively engaged in fixing the technical hurdle, and passengers are advised to check for real-time updates on service restoration. Despite the inconvenience caused by the disruption, metro services on the green line remain unaffected.
