Phase-III of Delhi Metro will bring better connectivity,linking satellite towns to the Capital.

The Inderlok-Mundka line,which will be extended all the way to

Bahadurgarh in Haryana,will have seven stations. The 11.1-km line will run through largely uninhabited areas in both the states and help connect various cities in the NCR.

“Extensions will also pave the way for development of these areas,” a DMRC official said. The official said properties would be developed for both residential and commercial purposes. The project will enable

sub-cities to come up.

Another area that will benefit from Metro Phase-III is Najafgarh in Outer Delhi. The 5.5-km elevated extension line from Dwarka to Najafgarh will have four stations. Dwarka will be an interchange station.

The third one,the Mukundpur-Gokulpuri line,will be extended to Shiv Vihar in Uttar Pradesh. Two

stations will be added on this route. The elevated line will cover 1.4 km in Uttar Pradesh.

The three extensions to the NCR are expected to be complete by 2016.
