New Metro Route Announced: 26.5 KM, 21 Stations Connecting Delhi, Haryana, UP

On Saturday (June 15), the Centre approved the Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs-DDA proposal for the Rithala-Narela-Kundli Metro route.

According to a Raj Niwas statement, Delhi Lieutenant Governor V K Saxena has actively sought the building of this metro corridor with the Centre on multiple occasions.

The creation of this corridor is expected to benefit the Narela sub-city, which is home to educational institutions, a multi-modal logistics park, corporate offices, and medical campuses. Notable institutions in the vicinity include Delhi Technological University, NIT Delhi, and the National Institute of Homoeopathy.

Rithala-Narela-Kundli metro corridor cost

The Rithala-Narela-Kundli metro corridor, an extension of the existing Red Line, is set to be constructed at an estimated cost of Rs 6,231 crore. The Delhi portion is budgeted at Rs 5,685.22 crore, with the central government covering nearly 40% of this cost. 

The Delhi Development Authority (DDA) will contribute Rs 1,000 crore, and the rest will be financed through bilateral/multilateral loans (37.5%) and the Delhi government (20%).

Rithala-Narela-Kundli metro corridor stations

This 26.5-km metro line with 21 stations is scheduled for completion within four years. It aims to significantly enhance connectivity for Narela, Bawana, and Alipur areas with the rest of the city, catalyzing infrastructure development. 

Key stations on the route will include sectors of Rohini, villages like Barwala and Sanoth, Narela sectors, J J Colony, Bawana industrial area, and several others crucial for enhancing regional connectivity and accessibility. The corridor is expected to benefit the growth and development of Narela-Bawana and address long-standing needs of the Rohini sub-city.
