PM Modi is scheduled to inaugurate the Kalkaji Mandir-Botanical Garden stretch of the Magenta line, which is to run between Delhi and Noida.
The Delhi Metro has blamed the crash on "human error and negligence" and has ordered a high-level inquiry.
"A trial train was moved from the workshop without testing the brake system as a result of which, while the train was moving up the ramp for washing, it rolled back and hit the adjacent boundary wall," the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation said in a statement.
The brakes should have been tested by the maintenance staff before the train left the shed. "It appears this was not done...the person who took charge of the train did not check the brake...Without the brakes, the train rolled back when it was being taken on a washing ramp," the statement said.
Delhi Metro's Managing Director Mangu Singh said operations on the Magenta Line were "absolutely safe", with a high level of automation. "Today's incident was manual error during maintenance and has nothing to do with the trials or passenger safety during future operations," said Mr Singh.
