The Delhi Metro Ral Corporation received the safety clearance for its upcoming Pink Line on Thursday by the Commissioner of Metro Rail Safety (CMRS). The 21.56-km-long metro line is likely to open for commercial operations next week and will connect Majlis park to Durgabai Deshmukh South Campus. 

DMRC's Pink Line will connect North, North-West, West and South Delhi. It has 12 stations, including three interchange stations at Azadpur, Netaji Subhash Place and Rajouri Garden. The interchange facility is also available at Dhaula Kuan station for the Airport Express Line.

Alternatively known as the 'ring road line' -- as it runs along the Ring Road -- the complete stretch of Pink line is estimated to be 59-km long. The entire corridor is likely to be fully operational by June 2018.
