As the 18th G20 Summit approaches, New Delhi is getting ready to ensure a warm welcome for delegates from around the world.

This highly anticipated event will be hosted in the newly constructed Bharat Mandapam located in Pragati Maidan, and it is expected to see the participation of at least 25 heads of state, leaders from global institutions and their delegations.

The summit is scheduled to take place from September 8 to 10, and extensive preparations in view of security and traffic movement are underway.

Metro Operations

For commuters planning to use the metro during the summit, the Delhi Police has issued a set of guidelines to ensure secure and smooth movement.

  • The Supreme Court station (formerly Pragati Maidan), adjacent to Gate no 10 on the Pragati Maidan (that houses the Bharat Mandapam) on Blue Line will be shut from September 8 to 10 during the G20 Summit, according to a fresh notification by the Delhi Police. An earlier notification stated the closure of a bunch of other stations in central Delhi.
  • Apart from this, DMRC has also identified 39 “sensitive” stations where there could be temporary entry/exit closures depending on the road route taken by the VIP/VVIP convoys.
