The Red Line (Line 1) is a metro rail line of the Delhi Metro, a rapid transit system in Delhi, India. It consists of the first stretch of the Delhi Metro that was constructed and commissioned in Delhi and has of 29 stations that runs from Rithala to Shaheed Sthal (Ghaziabad ISBT) with a total distance of 34.4 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 Tis Hazari to Shahdra section began in October 1998, and opened in December 2002. As part of Phase III plan, an eastward extension of 9.5 km from Dilshad Garden to Ghaziabad ISBT (New Bus Stand) commenced commercial operations on 8 March 2019.

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.

History[edit]

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.

As part of Phase III plan, 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 commercial operations started on 8 March 2019, thereby providing commuters another link to travel to Ghaziabad, as opposed to the Blue Line branch, that connects to Vaishali in Ghaziabad.[3]
