Commuting in Delhi was reduced to a crawl yesterday as the authorities carried out a Republic Day full dress rehearsal parade. Massive traffic jams were witnessed in various parts of central Delhi as the parade that began at 9.50 AM from Vijay Chowk moved towards the Red Fort. It affected commute times in the city hugely as all the routes around the area remained closed for the drill. Even in areas such as Mayur Vihar Phase I, traffic restrictions placed by Delhi Traffic Police caused a delay as long as one-and-a-half hours.
