FARIDABAD: Prime Minister Narendra Modi will inaugurate the Badarpur-Faridabad Metro Line of Delhi Metro here today.

 It is expected that around two lakh people will travel between the two cities on daily basis.

There are nine stations in this 13.875 km long section, which is an extension of Delhi Metro's Violet Line, currently running from ITO to Badarpur. These are Sarai, NHPC Chowk, Mewala Maharajpur, Sector 28, Badkal Mor, Old Faridabad, Neelam Chowk Ajronda, Bata Chowk and Escorts Mujesar. All these stations are elevated and located on either side of the Delhi-Mathura Road.

Prime Minister Modi will also address a public meeting after the inauguration.

Made with a total cost  Rs.2,500 crore, the extension of Delhi Metro will not only meet the long pending demand of about two lakh people commuting between Delhi and Faridabad every day, but will also make the travelling easie and will save a lot of time and money.

Once fully operational between Kashmere Gate and Escorts Mujesar, the Line 6 of the Delhi Metro will span a length of 43.4 kilometres.

The new route will be thrown open for the public at 4 in the evening.
