The Karkarduma or Karkardooma Metro Station is an interchange station located on between the Blue Line and Pink Line of the Delhi Metro and opened on 6 January 2010.[1][2] Though the existing station is at a height of 14.5 m, the interchange Metro station at Karkardooma, part of the Mukundpur-Shiv Vihar corridor in Phase III of Delhi Metro, is the highest station of the Delhi Metro network with a platform height of 22m from the ground level.[3][4]

The station is named after the Karkardooma locality in East Delhi, around its historic twin village named Karkari.[5] The area also has the district court of Delhi, the Karkardooma District Court in Karkardooma Courts Complex built in 1997-98.[6]
