New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi inaugurated the 11-km-long fully elevated Mundka-Bahadurgarh corridor of the Delhi Metro's Green Line on Sunday.

The Mundka-Bahadurgarh stretch, with seven stations, is an extension of the existing Green Line from Inderlok to Mundka. Prime Minister Narendra Modi inaugurated the facility using remote control from his office.  

Union Urban Affairs Minister Hardeep Puri and Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar attended the function in Bahadurgarh. The services on the new corridor will begin from 4 pm on June 24. The metro rail safety body has already given approval for starting passenger services. After the opening of this corridor, the entire Inderlok-Bahadurgarh section would become 26-km long. With the opening of this section, the Delhi Metro network will expand to 288 km with 208 stations. This section will be the metro's third line of connectivity to Haryana.

Mundka, which has industrial units, will benefit from the new corridor as it will help people employed there said a senior metro rail official. "According to the time table for the entire Inderlok-Kirti Nagar-City Park section, as many as 20 trains will be put into service," the official said.

The total running time between Inderlok and Bahadurgarh will be about 50 minutes.
