The 15.1-km-long Inderlok-Mundka line of the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) will be operational by March-end, as originally scheduled, Metro officials announced on Sunday.
This line will be opened with 13 trains initially, which will run at a frequency of 4 1/2 to 5 minutes during peak hours.
The travel time from Inderlok to Mundka or vice versa will be 31 minutes approximately. Starting from Inderlok to Mindka, there are 14 stations, all elevated, on the line, which uses standard gauge.
The stations are: Inderlok, Ashok Park (Main), Punjabi Bagh (East), Shivaji Park, Madipur, Paschim Vihar (East), Paschim Vihar (West), Peeragarhi, Udyog Nagar, Surajmal Stadium, Nangloi, Nangloi Railway Station, Rajdhani Park and Mundka.
Inderlok is a functional station on the Dilshad Garden-Rithala line and hence the Metro has offered a smooth interchange there so that passengers can change lines comfortably by walking a very short distance.
The platforms and concourse of the broad gauge and standard gauge connections are linked so that commuters can take the desired trains.
