A day after Reliance Infra refused to operate the Delhi Airport Metro line beyond June 30, the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) on Saturday said it has started all the necessary arrangements required to take over operations of the 22.7-km express link.

DMRC has started all necessary arrangements required for taking over the operations of the Airport Express Link, if any such requirement arises, in the wake of a recent letter by the concessionaire communicating that they (Reliance Infra) will not be able to run the services after the business hours of June 30, a spokesperson said.

Reliance Infra-owned Delhi Airport Metro Express (DAMEPL) had written a letter on June 27 expressing its inability to continue operations from the night of June 30
