New Delhi: It seems that throwing rules out of the window has become a habit of many people and they find a way, no matter where they are, to break them.

Something of this sort can be seen these days inside Delhi Metro train where many male passengers can be spotted sitting on seats reserved for females.

What's more shocking is they keep sitting on the seat reserved for ladies even if a female is standing in front of them.

"These days it has become a habit of some male counterpart to sit on the seat reserved for female, although it is not the case with everyone", said Shweta Singh who works in a private organisation in Noida and daily commutes via Metro.

"When we ask male passengers to get up from the seat reserved for ladies, some outrightly deny while other give seat after much hesitation and altercation", said Meena Kumari who daily commutes to Connaught Place in Metro.

"We are living in a civic society, people must have manner and they should follow rules and regulations," said Rahul Pandey, a businessman from South Delhi.

It is important to mention here that in every coach of Delhi Metro, seats are reserved for females and elderly citizens. There are also helpline numbers on which one can call and seek help in case of any emergency.
