The Red Line of the Delhi Metro system in Delhi consists of the first stretch that was constructed and commissioned in Delhi and has of 21 stations that runs from Dilshad Garden to Rithala with a total distance of 24.4 km.[2] The entire line is elevated. The line connects the areas of North East Delhi, North Delhi and North West Delhi. The DMRC was incorporated in 1995 and construction for the Tiz Hazari to Shahdra section began in October 1998, and opened in December 2002.


The Red Line was the first line of the Delhi Metro to be constructed and opened. The first Segment was constructed from Tis Hazari to Shahdara and opened on 25 December 2002. The Strategy worked in favour of DMRC. Many foreign investors, specifically from the Japan Bank for International Cooperation invested in the project, they were really impressed with the attempt, especially by the corruption free model. The money invested was utilised to complete the rest of the segments in phase-I and then in construction of the phase-II. Subsequently, other stations were opened in phases, initially between Tis Hazari to Inderlok in 2003, then from Inderlok to Rithala in 2004 and a final eastern extension from Shahdara to Dilshad Garden in 2008. The Red Line has interchanges with the Yellow Line at Kashmere Gate and the Green Metro at Inderlok. Kashmere Gate also has an interchange with the Violet Line. This line is the third most heavily used by daily commuters, as it acts as a link for those, who reside in West and North Delhi, to travel towards East Delhi and vice versa.

Future extensions[edit]

An extension from Rithala to Bawana (6.1 km), originally planned for Phase I, has been moved into Phase III for completion by 2016-17 respectively. Another Phase III plan, includes an eastward extension of 9.5  km from Dilshad Garden to Ghaziabad ISBT (New Bus Stand) which was approved by the DMRC and the government in January 2014. Construction began in early 2015 and is expected to be completed by October 2018, thereby providing commuters another link to travel to Ghaziabad, as opposed to the Blue Line branch, that connects to Vaishali in Ghaziabad.[3]

Under the Phase IV of the Delhi Metro Red Line will extended towards Narela (21.73 km)[4] with the proposed following Stations: Rohini Sector 26, Rohini Sector 31, Rohini Sector 32, Rohini Sector 36, Rohini Sector 37, Barwala, Put Khurd, Bawana Industrial Area – 1, Bawana Industrial Area – 2, Bawana, Bawana JJ Colony, Sanoth, New Sanoth Colony, Anaj Mandi and Narela
