Modi inaugurates Metro's Magenta line section

Gujarat Chief Minister Vijay Ramniklal Rupani

On the other hand, the National Capital ruling Aam Admi Party has criticised the Modi's government as the Delhi's Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal did not receive the invitation for the inauguration, according to the reports. PM Modi will also address a public meeting in Noida, after inaugurating the 12.64-km section of Delhi Metro's Magenta line, which connects Noida's Botanical Garden to South Delhi's Kalkaji Mandir.

The entire line, when complete, will run from Botanical Garden to Janakpuri West. After the introduction of this new section of Delhi Metro, the passengers will be able to fix the journey from Kalkaji temple to Botanical Garden metro station in 19 minutes.

Recalling Vajpayee inaugurating Delhi Metro's first train in 2002, Modi said, "Atal ji has shown the way for India's transformation in the 21st century and by inaugurating the Magenta Line we are taking his dream of well-connected India forward". If anyone travels via Metro's Blue and Violet Line for covering the same distance, then it will take 52 minutes, while Interchange Point is "Mandi House station". It will significantly reduce travel time between Noida and South Delhi.

Public transport is now going to enter the new era of technology.

Six of the nine new stations-Botanical Garden, Okhla Bird Sanctuary, Jamia Milia Islamia, Ishwar Nagar, Okhla NSIC and Kalkaji Mandir-have been decorated, reflecting themes of nature, Yoga, and cultural landmarks.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on 25th December flagged off the new magenta line of Delhi Metro.

The Majenta Line will have, for the first time in India, trains that will run unattended.

On this route, state-of-the-art communication based train control, or CBTC signal technology will also be installed to help track the movement of the train within 90 to 100 seconds. Metro Lines of around 250 kilometer length are proposed to be commissioned over the next two years. Initially, the frequency of the trains will be 5 minute 14 seconds with 10 trains being pressed into service.

AC local train services starting today
The Churchgate-Borivali weekly, fortnightly, and monthly passes will cost Rs. 855, Rs. 1,245, and Rs. 1,640 respectively. In the initial week, only six services of the local have been planned between Churchgate and Borivali.
