Centre increases baggage limit to 25 kg and 32 kg for regular and airport metro trains

Metro train passengers across the country can now carry more luggage as the weight limit has been increased from 15 kilograms to 25 kilograms. According to a notification issued by the Union Ministry for Housing and Urban Affairs (MoHUA), only one bag weighing up to 25 kilograms is allowed in regular metro trains and only one bag weighing up to 32 kilograms is allowed on dedicated metro trains for airports.

 Also, baggage in the form of bundles will not be permitted on any metro train.

The MoHUA notification stated, “ No person shall, while travelling in metro railway, carry with him any goods other than one baggage containing personal belongings not exceeding 80 centimetres x 50 centimetres x 30 centimetres in size and 25 kilograms in gross weight, except with prior approval of the metro railway administration.” The notification further stated: “In case of a dedicated metro line for airport connection, no person shall, while travelling in metro railway, carry with him any goods other than two baggages containing personal belongings not exceeding 90 centimetres x 75 centimetres x 45 centimetres in size and 32 kilograms in gross weight, except with prior approval of the metro railway administration.”

The government has amended the Metro Railways (Carriage and Ticket) Rules, 2014, to provide this benefit to the citizens.
