A day before it was announced that the operations of the 16 month old Delhi Airport Metro Express would be suspended. But the government on July 7, 2012 said that the high-speed corridor would resume services within two months.

The government cited necessary repairs, but left many questions unanswered. The Union Urban Development Ministry, the Delhi Metro, Delhi Government and Reliance Infrastructure were unable to explain about the shut down operations for an indefinite period. Reliance infrastructure said that there are some defects in the civil infrastructure and that there are some problems with the bearing which is the interface between the pillar and girder.
