The 3.32 k.m. long metro rail line connecting between Kirti Nagar and Ashok Park has been opened for public commuters. This metro stretch will connect three corridors - red line, green line and blue line ? and reduce the travel time and fares sharply.

The Kirti Nagar-Ashok Park stretch on the Green line (from Mundka to Inderlok) has been opened Saturday afternoon.

This section will provide connectivity between Line 1 (Rithala to Dilshad Garden), Line 3 (Dwarka Sector-21 to Noida City Centre/Vaishali) and Line 5 (Inderlok - Mundka).

Passengers will no longer have to change trains at Kashmere Gate and Rajiv Chowk stations. Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit has inaugurated it.

"Initially 15 trains will be running on this line, with a peak hour frequency of about four minutes," DMRC officials informed.

"The link will cut down the travel fare by more than 50 percent for many commuters," official added.
