The Rajiv Chowk (Hindi: राजीव चौक) is a Delhi Metro station in Delhi, on the Blue and Yellow Lines. It is a transfer station between the Blue Line on the upper level and the Yellow Line on the lower level.[2]

It is one of the busiest stations on the network, serving Connaught Place in the heart of Delhi. It handles 5 lakh passengers every day.[3]

Many businesses and important buildings, restaurants and cinemas are situated just outside the station. The station is constructed below Central Park.

Connaught Place is officially known as Rajiv Chowk, named after former Indian Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi.[4] and hence the intersection station is named Rajiv Chowk Metro Station.
