外文标题：Metro keeps love alive in Delhi
NEW DELHI: For the price of a parking ticket at a mall you can spend more than three hours hopping trains and idling at platforms on Delhi Metro's grid. No wonder, the Metro has become a popular dating space in the city. Delhi Metro Rail Corporation's (DMRC) data shows more than a lakh commuters are penalized every month for overstaying in its system. Most of those caught loitering are young couples, officials say.
With privacy at a premium in the city, Metro stations, especially the secluded ones, are a haven for many. Not just couples but also groups of friends hang around at stations like Yamuna Bank, Pragati Maidan, Rajouri Garden, Janakpuri and Qutub Minar, besides interchange stations like Kashmere Gate, New Delhi and Kirti Nagar. For many, it's a safe and cheap way to spend time with their beloved.

So metro is making money on this ..
Leave them alone. They too need space.
Good news. But jealous moral police will plunge into clean up drive. Hostile country.

Perhaps the pleasant Air conditioned atmosphere in the metro cars may be adding to their sojourn, not to return to their homes. The Metro cars are provided with cctv cameras to cover all around. Passengers indulging in unacceptable acts may be warned that their photographs would be exhibited in the stations to discourage them.
