Magenta Line Delhi Metro route, stations, and latest updates

[] Know all about the Magenta Line, its operational metro route and the under-construction extension across Delhi

To provide an alternative route for connecting the Noida region with western Delhi via south Delhi, the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) planned the Magenta Line between Botanical Garden in Noida and Janakpuri in Delhi. Both of these stations were already connected via the Delhi Metro Blue Line. As a result, the Magenta Line metro took over the excessive load from the Blue Line route by providing a faster way of getting across the NCR, without crossing central Delhi and the congested nodes of Rajiv Chowk and Mandi House.

Magenta Line route: Interesting facts

  • The Magenta Line is the first driverless metro in India.
  • The Janakpuri West metro station has the tallest escalator with a vertical height of 15 metres.
  • It was on the Magenta Line, where, for the first time, two parallel tunnels were constructed simultaneously. This was at the Dabri Mor station.
  • Shankar Vihar is the only Delhi Metro station where free movement is restricted by the military. This is because it falls in the Delhi Cantonment area.
  • The Hauz Khas station on the Magenta Line and the Yellow Line is the deepest metro station at a depth of 32 metres.

How Magenta Line has impacted the real estate market

The Magenta Line connects two distant nodes of the national capital region, which were already connected earlier via the Blue Line Delhi Metro. However, the Magenta Line follows a different route, via posh pockets of south Delhi, such as Panchsheel Park, Greater Kailash, Hauz Khas and so on. While the prices are already on the higher end and the supply is mostly saturated with bungalows and kothis giving way to independent floors, the Magenta Line basically gave a push to connectivity in its neighbouring areas, which gets spillover demand from these localities. Once extended towards RK Ashram, north Delhi will have better connectivity to the western region, which is mostly untouched, so far.
