26 December 2017

Noida (U.P.), Dec 25 (ANI): Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday hailed the contribution of 22 crore Uttar Pradesh residents in bringing his Government at the Centre. The 12.64-kilometre section of Delhi Metro's magenta line inaugurated today connects Noida to southeast delhi with seven other stations along the way.

Once fully operational by March next, the Magenta Line (Botanical Garden-Janakpuri West) will ferry approximately 3.60 lakh commuters every day, Delhi Metro estimates.

One of the new trains crashed through a wall at a depot last week, sparking concern about the automation technology. If anyone travels via Metro's Blue and Violet Line for covering the same distance, then it will take 52 minutes, while Interchange Point is "Mandi House station".
