The Delhi Metro is the lifeline of the N.C.R. It has surely made travel cheaper and convenient. But some of their meticulously prepared rules for passengers are so absurd, you wonder why they exist. Have a look at these gems.

1. Carrying ‘dangerous & offensive material’ on the Metro is not allowed.So you know, throw away that Chetan Bhagat book before boarding.

2. Also, you can’t 'unlawfully' put up posters in the metro.

5. Explosions aren't allowed.

What!

6. Unauthorized sale of tickets will fetch you a fine of Rs.500.So don’t even try unless you’re confident of making at least that much.

What does that even mean? I'm not allowed to stand in front of them? I'm not supposed to bump into them? What?
