Baggage check-in infrastructure for both National and International travel are in place but the service of baggage check-in would start shortly, the spokesman said.
The corridor was shut in July last year after Reliance Infra complained to the Delhi Metro that cracks have been noticed on civil structures of the corridor. Delhi Metro completed the civil structure and handed it over to Reliance Infra for operations in 2010.
The reduction of speed comes a big blow for both Delhi Metro and Reliance Infra which have been claiming that trains can be run at a maximum of 120 km per hour.
Problems were also noticed in the clippings used in the underground section of the corridor. It is believed that the train speed can be increased only when the clipping issue is rectified.
The problems on the civil structure also led the Reliance Infrastructure offer to quit the Line citing financial non- viability.
But, Delhi Metro rejected the offer and the same is now referred to arbitration.
