New Delhi: The next time you realise your mobile phone has run out of battery charge and you are commuting by the Delhi Metro, don't fret - just connect your phone to the charging points that will soon be available at stations for free.

For the convenience of its commuters, the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) will install 134 multiple mobile charging machines at stations by July this year in a phased manner.

"Metro commuters can charge their mobile phones at metro stations as soon as charging points at stations are ready," DMRC spokesperson Anuj Dayal said Sunday.

All major metro stations are already equipped with facilities such as bill-drop boxes, ATMs, tea and coffee vending machines, coin vending machines, eating joints, book shops and gift shops. The rent-a-cycle facility is also available at Patel Chowk, Pragati Maidan and Indraprastha metro stations.

Delhi-based Somya Enterprises is installing these machines, which will have multiple sockets to enable commuters to charge mobile phones of different brands and makes for free.

"The mobile phone charging machine will have six sockets or chargers and will be mounted on the walls in the paid area of the station," Dayal informed.

In addition, charging points will also be available for laptops and mobile phones on board the 131 new trains which are being inducted for Phase 2 of Delhi Metro.
