The Delhi Metro’s Yellow Line, from Jahangirpuri to Huda City Centre, will now go all the way to Manesar in Gurgaon.
The detailed project report (DPR) for the extension will be ready in another six months, a senior official of the Haryana government said. Once the DPR is ready, the Haryana government will approach the Centre for project approval, the official said.
He said the stretch will be over 30 km long. It will run alongside the northern and the southern peripheral roads, which are around 16 and 10 km long, respectively.
“About five months ago, we awarded the task of preparing the DPR to US-based Aecom, one of the leading consultant firms in the field of structural engineering. The company was given a deadline of 11 months. Six months are already over and, if things remain on schedule, we will approach the Central government for approval soon,” he said.
According to officials, the extension is part of the Mass Rapid Transport System connecting Gurgaon, Manesar, Bawal, Rewari and Neemrana — an “early bird project” of the Delhi Mumbai Industrial Corridor Development Corporation in the Manesar-Bawal investment region of Haryana.

According to Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) officials, the Haryana government had asked them about a year ago to prepare the DPR for the extension. The request was retracted later without any official explanation.
“We never heard anything on the subject after that. They never explained why they didn’t want us to take forward the work on the line,” a DMRC official said.
Haryana government officials, however, denied having written any such letter to the DMRC.
