The trains during this time took inordinately long halts at stations, according to commuters, even lasting up to 15-20 minutes.
As a result, trains were being locally controlled as and when such loss happened, resulting into bunching/ hold-up of trains for brief spells.
The line that connects Dwarka in west Delhi to Vaishali in Ghaziabad and Noida was hit by signal failure between its Karol Bagh and Dwarka section first, and later between 3 p.m and 3.30 p.m on the entire route.
Finally, the issue was resolved at 4.23 p.m and since then trains were reported to be running smoothly.
The long delay between trains resulted in huge crowded at such stations as Rajiv Chowk, Yamuna Bank and Mandi House, which see a heavy footfall anyway.
