Metro for East Delhi from today
The DMRC will start operations at the newly-constructed Yamuna Bank station on Sunday. Earlier scheduled for May 2,the extension of Metro Line 3 (Dwarka Sector 9-Indraprastha) up to Yamuna Bank was postponed due to the Lok Sabha elections. Even on Sunday,there will be no function,as the model code of conduct is still in force. To make it easily accessible to East Delhi residents,a new Metro Feeder Bus Service will be started from the new station to Mayur Vihar Phase-III. A parking for around 400 cars has also been constructed.
