The commissioner for metro rail safety has given the compulsory approval to begin passenger services on the 25.6-km-long section between Janakpuri West and Kalkaji Mandir, which will soon be open for public, an official said on Tuesday.
"The commissioner for metro rail safety has given the mandatory approval for the start of passenger operations for Janakpuri West-Kalkaji Mandir, subject to the fulfilment of certain conditions and stipulations," a Delhi Metro Rail Corporation official said.
The Magenta Line has 16 stoppages, including two inter-change stations, Hauz Khas (with Yellow Line) and Janakpuri West (with Blue Line).
The Magenta Line would reduce the travel time between West Delhi and South Delhi, Gurugram, Faridabad, and Noida. The 55 minutes journey would take less than 30 minutes.
"The exact date of opening of this corridor will be intimated after compliance of the same by DMRC," the official added.
