Magenta Line: Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and Union Minister for Housing and Urban Affairs Hardeep Singh Puri will flag the first train on the line at Nehru Enclave station at 4.30 pm.
Passenger services on the stretch will begin on May 29 at 6 am. The stretch between Kalkaji Mandir and Noida Botanical Garden is functional since December 25, 2017.
With the commissioning of this section, the entire Delhi Metro corridor will expand to 278 kilometres with 202 stations.

The bench on the last date had pulled up the Delhi Metro for not providing free drinking water or toilet facilities to commuters inside the stations, asking whether it has lost “a sense of human problems”.
According to the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC), there was intermittent Over Head Electrification (OHE) tripping on the up line section between Central Secretariat and Mandi House (going towards Kashmere Gate).
About 9,000 CISF men and women are currently deployed to secure the existing stations of the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation. The fresh manpower of the CISF will be used to guard this network, the official said.
