    DMRC Explores Expansion Plans to Enhance Connectivity with Neighboring State
    The Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) has announced that the proposed Rithala-Narela corridor of the Delhi Metro network may be extended further to Kundli in Haryana. This expansion aims to provide enhanced connectivity to the neighboring state, making it the fourth Delhi Metro expansion into Haryana after the Yellow Line (Gurugram), Violet Line (Faridabad), and Green Line (Bahadurgarh).
    The extension is planned as a continuation of the existing Shaheed Sthal-Rithala corridor of the Red Line, potentially becoming the first Delhi Metro corridor to connect Haryana and Uttar Pradesh via Delhi. Initially, the corridor will feature smaller stations capable of accommodating four coach trains, with provisions for future expansion to accommodate eight coach trains to meet growing traffic demands.
    If approved, the entire corridor will span 27.319 km and comprise 22 stations, of which 21 will be elevated and one at grade. The proposed stations along the extended corridor include Rithala, Rohini Sector 25, Rohini Sector 26, Rohini Sector 31, Rohini Sector 32, Rohini Sector 36, Barwala, Rohini Sector 35, Rohini Sector 34, Bawana Industrial Area – 1 Sector 3,4, Bawana Industrial Area – 1 Sector 1,2, Bawana JJ Colony, Sanoth, New Sanoth, Depot Station, Bhorgarh village, Anaj Mandi Narela, Narela DDA Sports Complex, Narela, Narela Sector 5, Kundli, and Nathupur.
    The extension of the Red Line corridor will significantly benefit residents of new residential colonies, such as those located in Narela, where the Delhi Development Authority (DDA) has launched housing schemes featuring over 3,500 flats. The DMRC’s expansion to Dwarka in the past has similarly improved connectivity to the sub-city, highlighting the positive impact of metro expansions on urban connectivity.
    This proposed extension would also connect the region with the existing Red Line, which stretches up to Ghaziabad in Uttar Pradesh, covering key locations in central and east Delhi.
    Currently, the route alignment revision, station planning, topographical survey, traffic survey, and environmental impact assessment study for the extended portion from Narela to Kundli (5 km long) are underway. The revised detailed project report (DPR) for the Rithala-Narela-Kundli corridor is expected to be submitted by the end of this month. Following finalization, the DPR will be submitted to the government for consideration and approval.
