Violet Line connects Kashmere Gate station in Delhi to Raja Nahar Singh station in Faridabad.

"Service between Badarpur Border and Kashmere Gate stations have been affected due to some technical issues. We are looking into it," a senior official said.

The DMRC also tweeted to alert passengers about the delay, many of whom got down at various stations and took other modes of travel.

"I travel from Sarita Vihar to Central Secretariat for work. The train was stopping for longer duration at each station and and at Lajpat Nagar station, the train just halted far too long, when the announcement was made about the delay.
