Delhi Metro Phase 4: Stations list, map, route, and latest news on upcoming metro projects in Delhi

The Delhi Metro’s Phase 4, spanning 104 kms over three corridors, has been planned to provide last-mile connectivity to the new housing hubs in the National Capital Region

The Delhi Metro’s Phase 4 (Phase IV), has been planned to provide last-mile connectivity to the new housing hubs in the National Capital Region (NCR). Initially, the completion deadline was set as 2022 and the work on the project was expected to begin in 2017. However, the project has faced several delays. Work on Phase 4 finally began on December 30, 2019, with a ground-breaking ceremony for piling work for stations along the Janakpuri West-RK Ashram Marg corridor, being held at Haider Badli Mor. The 104-km Delhi Metro Phase 4 network, is expected to cater to 1.5 million passengers daily, when fully completed. The route is expected to finish by December 2024 but may get delayed due to Covid-19 induced lockdown. The Delhi Metro Phase 4 project covers three approved corridors, Maujpur to Majlis Park, Janakpuri West to RK Ashram, and Tughlakabad to Aerocity, spanning a total length of around 65 kms.

Construction works on the three corridors of the Phase IV, namely, Inderlok – Indraprastha, Rithala – Bawana and Lajpat Nagar – Saket, has faced delays due to the COVID-19 pandemic. However, the work on Maujpur-Majlis Park along with other corridors of Metro Phase IV, namely, Janakpuri West – RK Ashram and Aerocity – Tughlaqabad is in progress. The Maujpur-Majlis Park stretch is expected to be completed first. The Lajpat Nagar-Saket section will be the shortest corridor under Phase IV and will serve as a link between the Magenta Line (connecting Botanical Garden to Janakpuri west) and the Pink Line and the new metro line in Delhi from Tughlaqabad to Aerocity.
