"Train services between Dwarka and Noida are running seamless in one go with a frequency of around 4 minutes and 30 seconds on an automatic mode through central control, i.e., Operations Control Centre," the official said. The regular frequency of trains on Dwarka-Noida line is 2 minutes and 30 seconds, he added.
