    It is currently installed in five metro stations - Barakhamba Road, Anand Vihar, Chandni Chowk, Kashmere Gate and Shahdara.

    Speaking with TOI, the DMRC spokesperson said that the U-shaped barriers will be installed at 15 more stations by the end of February or by March. To begin with, passengers wouldn't be disallowed from travelling if they have oversized baggage, but they will be educated about the rules.
