Mumbai Metro services faced disruptions as a train encountered a technical glitch between Eksar and Mandapeshwar stations in Borivali on Tuesday morning, according to the Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA).

The MMRDA swiftly addressed the technical glitch, assuring efforts to restoring normalcy soon. However, due to sudden bunching, trains on the affected route were running slightly behind schedule. The authority assured passengers in the morning that efforts were underway to minimize delays.

The MMRDA did not provide specific details regarding the nature of the technical issue.
