Metro services were affected between Yelachenahalli and RV Road on the Green Line for nearly two hours on Sunday afternoon due to a signalling problem, effectively suspending trains to three stations beyond RV Road. 

Metro officials said a glitch in the signalling system at Yelachenahalli led to the disruption at 12.06 pm which was fixed at 1.52 pm. "During this period, short-loop operations were run between RV Road and Nagasandra," Bangalore Metro Rail Corporation Limited spokesperson B L Yashavanth Chavan said. 

Hundreds of people were inconvenienced due to the disruption as Yelachenahalli, JP Nagar and Banashankari stations see a good number of passengers even on Sunday. Commuters took to social media to complain about the problem. A staffer at the Banashankari station said the number of commuters affected was "very marginal". "Had it been a weekday, it would have been difficult for us," he added.
