G20 Summit Delhi: Routes And Other Guidelines
In order to prevent any inconvenience to the general public on September 9 and 10, the Delhi Police issued warnings, rules, and directions for the roads, trains, and metro. They also discussed alternate routes for vehicles on these days.
All businesses in New Delhi, including schools, offices, restaurants, malls, and markets, would be closed from September 8 to September 10. During this time, the Supreme Court will likewise be closed. Entry and departure will be allowed to locals without the need for special passes.

All metro stations will still offer travellers access to the metro rail system. However, from 5 am on September 9 to 11 pm on September 10, no boarding or deboarding will be allowed at the Supreme Court Metro Station.
