Who is there to make it dirty ? Indians only, few years down you will see people spitting pan there. Dirty toilets with buts and spit everywhere. Old habits die hard, people still spit in delhi metro, they have imposed a fine, but who cares ?. Cant change. Building good infrastructure changes nothing, users are the same. Even if the road is 8 lane, look how Indians drive there. I am dead sure nothing will change there ever. So I quit. Look how the treat pedestrians in India, how they stick to their seats in public transport even after seeing a old man/ women/ pregnent woman/ small child. How they dispose of garbage everywhere, shit everywhere, spit everywhere, piss everywhere, will to lead a orderly life missing.

By the way Indian Govt had not constructed this airport, it is a private company (GMR Group, Fraport) and they will operate it for next many years collecting revenue. Indian Govt had not role except cutting the ribbon & taking credit.

Can feel proud if both Indians and India changes and not only by India changes.

I fully agree with you. May be some day our friendly neighbor would send a friendly suicide bomber to destroy the glamor and ambiance.

It is a fact of the life that in India, nothing works without bribe. Hence I would say this is $2 billion airport and not $3 billion. The rest you would be in Swiss bank of .. You can guess the names.

and why is there a smoking room? the whole airport should be a smoke free zone just like numerous other major world airports.

I would have agreed with you if I had not have seen Delhi Metro....it is almost 10 years operational....and it is still sparkling clean. It is 100 times better and cleaner than TTC or NYC Metro...

Prayer Room is definately required in Indian Airports-
To please muslims as they need to pray 5 times in a day. They avoided the controversy by naming it prayer room than mosque. Big vote bank for any ruling party.
How about facility of bar, disc, dance bar, hooka bar, snooker room,GB Road room, de/addiction room- do they have made any provisions.:cheers:

Desi #1 - looks like you had not visited India after 2003, ten years before even the pillars of delhi metro were not there.
You should know that spitting/ shitting/ peeing in public place is national hobby of Indians in India. They have this unwritten fundamental right provided in constitution. And they derive powers from it. It is unfettered and goes unhindered. Right to spit/ shit / pee is public places is implemented in India at virtually all places.

Delhi Metro crack down on defacement
By IANSMay 2nd, 2010
NEW DELHI - The Delhi Metro has deployed four special squads to curb incidents of spitting and defacement of its property by commuters, which have been on the rise, an official said.

In March, over 195 cases of spitting were detected and around 62 cases of defacement of Metro property were detected, the official said.

“With a reported increase in incidents of spitting, littering and defacement of Metro premises, station staff has been specifically directed to keep a close eye on commuters,” said Delhi Metro spokesman Anuj Dayal.

CWG 2010: Commuter behaviour worries Delhi Metro
New Delhi: The Commonwealth Games are round the corner and Delhi Metro officials face a daunting task -- grooming commuters to behave courteously. Over 5,000 passengers have already been fined for various offences like spitting and defacing Metro property.

"The Delhi Metro wants to maintain world class civic standards in its trains and stations, but Delhiites have earned a distinction of being discourteous, especially when they use public transport," said Mohinder Yadav, the DMRC public relation officer.

"The unruly behaviour by the commuters is turning out to be a headache for the authorities."


At least 5,256 passengers have been fined for committing offences in the premises of Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) and a fine of Rs 10.5 lakh has been collected in the last two years. The maximum number of offences pertain to spitting, creating nuisance and defacing Metro property.

"The figures are bothering us, as 10 out of 11 venues for the upcoming Commonwealth Games are near Metro stations," said Yadav.

"The Games Village, where most of the athletes will reside, is adjacent to the Akshardham Metro station. Hence, we expect a large number of international visitors to use the Metro system," he said.

In March this year, a maddening crowd pushed a 22-year-old woman, Meherbin, from the platform to the tracks where a speeding Metro train crushed her legs. The first time traveller lost her legs. In the same incident, 30-year-old Raju lost one of his legs.

"We have received a number of complaints of passenger misbehaviour during the past year. The situation forced us to paste stickers reserving four seats each for women, senior citizens and needy in each coach," Yadav said.


But it doesn't seem to have helped.

Priyanka Gupta, a regular commuter, said most of the time seats reserved for women are occupied by men. "Travelling on the Delhi Metro is not comfortable, particularly during peak hours," she said.

Gupta also said that during her first trip on a crowded Metro train from Indraprastha to Dwarka, she was harassed by a middle-aged man.

According to Delhi Metro statistics, so far 346 commuters have been penalised for creating unnecessary nuisance and 23 have been fined for quarrelling.

As many as 84 people have been booked for obstructing the duty of officials. Also, 211 people were fined for travelling beyond the authorised distance and 341 were penalised for sitting on the train floor.

Sharing her experiences said, Ritu Aggarwal, a regular Metro commuter, said: "Delhiites have no civic sense. Recently, when a train reached Preet Vihar station, a middle aged man tried to spit paan on the platform. In doing so, he spat on my dress as I was getting into the train!"

According to DMRC, 1,797 have been booked for spitting inside the premises of the station, 818 people have been penalised for defacing Metro property and over 432 booked for drunkenness.

Delhi Metro officials say four special flying squads have been formed to create surprise checks almost every day on different routes to catch erring commuters.

"We have launched these initiatives for the convenience of travellers, but they can be successful only with people's cooperation," Yadav said.
