PM Modi to inaugurate Delhi Metro’s Green Line from Mundka to Bahadurgarh today

Prime Minister Narendra Modi is likely to inaugurate the 11.2-km-long fully-elevated Mundka-Bahadurgarh corridor of the Delhi Metro’s Green Line on Sunday, sources said.

This would be the DMRC’s third foray into the neighbouring state of Haryana. Metro services are already operational in Gurgaon (Yellow Line) and Faridabad (Violet Line).

The Mundka-Bahadurgarh stretch, with seven stations, would be an extension of the existing Green Line (standard-gauge tracks) from Inderlok to Mundka.

“Prime Minister Narendra Modi will inaugurate the facility through a video-conference facility from the PMO on Sunday,” a highly-placed source said. It has been reported that Union Urban Affairs Minister Hardeep Puri and Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar will also attend the function in Bahadurgarh.

After the opening of this corridor, the entire Inderlok-Bahadurgarh section would become 26.33 km long. With the opening of this section, the Delhi Metro network will expand to 288 km with 208 stations.

Bahadurgarh has a population of about 1.7 lakh and besides having industrial units is also an upcoming educational hub, with many universities and colleges. Mundka too has industrial units, and therefore the new corridor will facilitate to-and-fro travel of people employed there and students who have to travel from Delhi, the official said.
