The Dwarka Sector 21 Metro Station is located on the Blue Line of the Delhi Metro. This station was built as an extension together with Dwarka Sector 8 in order to serve Dwarka residents better and provide interchange with the Delhi Airport Express and designed by Absolute Architecture. The station was inaugurated on October 30, 2010 after the completion of successful trials and approval from the railway inspector. [1][2]
