      There is a rule mentioned on Delhi Metro’s website, it is as follows :-
      “Don’t bring eatables inside the station premises.” More precisely, many a items including “Any decayed animal or vegetable matter” is prohibited.

      Also, Delhi Metro is a public transport. Due to the crowd in the metro it is prohibited for eating and drinking or carrying eatables, as well as it will keep the metro clean and more convenient to travel.
