The Central Secretariat (Hindi: केन्द्रीय सचिवालय) (often abbreviated Central Sectt on platforms and trains) is a Delhi Metro station in Delhi, on the Yellow Line. The Violet Line links it with Badarpur. The station provides a same-level interchange between the two lines.[1] It was the southern terminus of the Yellow line from 2005 to September 2010,[2] and the northern terminus of the Violet Line from October 3, 2010 to June 26, 2014.[3]

Nearby landmarks include Krishi Bhavan, and the Parliament House and Central Secretariat.

Many DTC buses terminate outside the nearby Kendriya Terminal, including the 7 (Kewal Park), 185 (Nathul Pura), 190 (Burari), 260 (Harsh Vihar), 270 (Karawal Nagar), 271 (Jagat Pur Temple) and 581 (Deoli).

It is the only station to have totally different names in English and Hindi. Delhiites refer to the station by different names, including Secretariat, Kendriya Terminal (after the bus stop), Parliament station or simply Central.
