Delhi Metro opens Pink Line
Delhi Metro, as part of expanding its network, will inaugurate the 20 km long Pink Line connecting south and north-west Delhi (Majlis Park – Durgabai Deshmukh South Campus section).
Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and Union Minister for Housing and Urban Affairs Hardeep Singh Puri will flag off the new service in the evening. The Pink Line would be a blessing for students as it reduces the time to reach Delhi University.
Delhi Metro Rail Corporation expects over 12,000 people to use the new station situated right next to Sri Venkateswara College. The Pink Line, a part of the DMRC Phase 3 project, would be featuring 12 stations: Majlis Park, Azadpur, Shalimar Bagh, Netaji Subhash Place, Shakurpur, Punjabi Bagh West, ESI Hospital, Rajouri Garden, Mayapuri, Naraina Vihar, Delhi Cantt and Durgabai Deshmukh South Campus.
