Co-ordinating with the delivery guy from e-commerce sites. Delhi Metro stations will double up as terminals for e-commerce sites from February. Customers will have the option to have products delivered at select stations and collect it on their commute at their convenience.

The arrangement is expected to come in handy for those who make online purchase but are generally not at home to receive things ordered. Now they can ask the portals to have the products delivered at designated Metro terminals from where they can collect them during travel.

The chosen stations, distributed over the busiest lines of Metro, are MG Road, HUDA City Centre, Noida Sector 18, Laxmi Nagar, Vaishali, Nehru Place, Dwarka Sector 9, Kashmere Gate, Rajiv Chowk and GTB Nagar.

"This is a move to provide last mile delivery option to the customers of e-tailers which will act as a revenue generation model for DMRC as we are providing the space for setting up these kiosks," a metro official said.

Under the arrangement, customers will be given the option to get their merchandise delivered to these designated terminals during their online purchase itself.
