Delhi Traffic police's twitter handle gave out advisories as well. Traffic remained heavy in South Delhi's Vayusenabad. Their helpline received over 70 complaints of waterlogging, while many traffic signals also stopped functioning due to the rain.
A senior Traffic police official said that most of the complaints were related to South Delhi neighbourhoods such as Nizammudin, Malviya Nagar and Okhla, among others. Over 20 complaints were reported from East Delhi too.
"Such was the traffic jam due to the water logging that I was stuck in the Lajpat Nagar-Ashram stretch for one-and-a-half hours. It felt as if no cars were moving. If such is the condition then better Delhi does not receive rain," PR professional Govind Pradhan, whose office is in Noida, told IANS.
