  2. 2. Delhi Metro – Travelling Across the Indian Capital Was Never so Easy Delhi is a city of contrasts. It is as much historical as it is contemporary. It is as much encompassing as it is constrict. And it is as much pompous as it is modest. But this is where the real charm lies, putting the city on the top of the popularity charts amongst holidaymakers boarding flights to sojourn Indian subcontinent. As far as Delhi’s traffic is concerned, it has a reputation of being notorious. Getting caught in city’s gridlock traffic is not an unusual thing and often results in wasting a lot of valuable time en route. But with excellent Delhi Metro rail network, it has become quite easy and hassle-free to navigate your way around. This article sheds light on Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) and its benefits for denizens as well as foreign tourists taking flights arriving here.
  3. 3. About Delhi Metro Rail System It is a rapid transit system severing the National Capital Region of India. Inaugurated in December 2002, this rail system was designed to assist people in travelling across Delhi NCR conveniently. It connects all major areas in and around the city including Indira Gandhi International Airport as well as many tourist attractions like Qutub Minar, Red Ford, Connaught Place (CP) and Akshardham Temple. Travelling in air-conditioned metro trains is quite convenient, safe and, above all, economical. No wonder, in a short span of time, this rail network has become the most preferred mode of transport for many in the Indian capital. Even international tourists booking tickets on flights bound for the metropolis use Delhi Metro as a quick and efficient transport option to get around. Network DMRC network consists of six lines, constructed as elevated, at-grade and underground. These are Red, Yellow, Blue, Voilet, Green and Airport Express. Four most popular ones are described below: Red: It was the first line to be introduced in the city. With a total distance of around 25kms, it connects 21 metro stations from Rithala to Dilshad Garden. Some popular locations on the route are Netaji Shubash Place, Inderlok and Kashmiri Gate/ISBT (Inter State Bus Terminus).
  4. 4. Yellow: Linking one of the busiest routes of DMRC, this line runs from Jahangir Puri to Huda City Centre in Gurgaon, India’s new-age business hub. With many popular stations en route, tourists who spend on flights for exploring city’s historical gems like Red Fort and Qutub Minar will find it useful and handy. Interchanges are available at Kashmiri Gate (for Red Line), Rajiv Chowk (for Blue Line), Central Secretariat (for Violet Line) and New Delhi Railway Station (for Indian railway network). Blue: Covering the longest distance (more than 47kms) amongst all lines, it connects Dwarka Sub City with the satellite city of Noida.
