Neighbourhood News Desk: Delhi Metro workers plan to strike work from June 30 if their demands for better pay and a union are not accepted, potentially affecting the national capital’s main public transport. Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) employs around 12,000 people, with non-executive staffers accounting for about 9,000.

Non-executive staff, like train operators, station controllers, maintenance staff and technicians, have also held protests at metro stations since June 19 to press for their eight demands.
