The Noida Metro Rail Corporation (NMRC) is set to launch a service that would allow individuals to reserve individual metro coaches for events including birthday parties, pre-wedding photographs, and anniversary celebrations.
The NMRC is in the process of engaging an event management company to promote the metro’s Aqua Line as a low-cost party location.
The objective of throwing parties in metro coaches and stations is to generate revenue other than through ride fares.
On March 28, the Aqua line saw 29,071 commuters, the largest number since service was restarted following the lockout.

The effort was supposed to start in February 2020, however, due to the pandemic, it was postponed.
It is possible to rent up to four metro coaches or a specific portion at any Aqua Line stop.
According to a tender document published on March 28, metro coaches and station premises can be reserved for birthday parties, anniversary celebrations, pre-wedding shootings, as well as the filming of commercials and documentaries.
Flowers, banners, and non-adhesive materials can be used to decorate metro coaches. (Candles and sprays are strictly forbidden)
For the event, each coach will be limited to a maximum of 50 individuals, including adults and children.
According to the NMRC, running metro coaches will be available between the hours of 6 a.m. and 10.45 p.m. throughout operational hours.
You will be able to charter static trains from 11 p.m. to 2 a.m. if you want to throw a midnight party.
A static metro carriage without decorations will cost Rs 5,000 per hour, while a running metro coach will cost Rs 8,000 per hour.
Running and static trains will cost Rs 10,000 and Rs 7,000, respectively, for decorated coaches.
