With this stretch, the total length of the corridor will increase to 49km.

Hang around at any Metro Rail Platform in Chennai for over 20 Minutes, Pay the Penalty

Chennai (MAS): If you stay more than 20 minutes at the platform of metro stations without boarding a train, you are liable to be penalised.

Chennai Metro Rail officials said the smart card won’t work when trying to enter into the station and the ticket checking official could easily find out that you have overstayed. And this could result in the commuter having to pay the penalty even if he hasn’t used the service.

However, Chennai Metro has not yet notified this and an official promised that announcements would be put out in the stations to make commuters aware of the consequences of either loitering or waiting too long on the platform.
