Public services start on first section of Delhi Metro Phase 3
Thursday, June 26, 2014



DELHI celebrated the launch of public services on the first section of the third phase of the city's metro network on June 26, when India's minister for urban development Mr Venkaiah Naudu inaugurated the 3.2km extension of Line 2 from Central Secretariat to Mandi House.

The extension, which includes one intermediate station at Janpath, has taken two-and-a-half years to complete and was originally due to open in October. Trial operation began last December.

Around 70,000 passengers per day are expected to use Mandi House station by 2016 and services will run at minimum headways of 3min 25sec.

The underground line is the first phase of the 9.4km seven-station northern extension of Line 6 to Kashmir Gate, which will relieve the congested interchange between Line 2 and Line 3 at Rajiv Chowk.

The third phase of construction will add 137km to the Delhi metro network by 2016
And updated map on urbanrail.net:

Central Secretariat station -



violet and yellow footprints indicating how to reach the platform level for each line




platform connector to easily switch between the yellow line (southbound) <=> violet line (northbound) without having to come up to the concourse level:






If we go by this board on the platform level, then the Jama Masjid station will now be called Daryaganj


The station indicator panel within the trains have been updated:

Design of the new metro coaches for phase III



NEW DELHI: Travelling in Delhi Metro's Phase III will be a faster, brighter and more comfortable experience with new trains that will be more energy-efficient and eco-friendly.

"These trains will be 10% more efficient than the existing trains, as well as faster," said HS Anand, director, rolling stock, Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC). He said the trains will be more energy-efficient due to features like better regeneration of energy during braking.

"Sub-systems like LED lighting and more energy-efficient air-conditioning will add to the green aspect," said Anand. With better acceleration and deceleration systems in place, the trains will also run faster. "At present, Phase II trains run at an average speed of 32kmph. Lines 7 and 8 will run at average speeds of 35kmph," said Anand.

The new trains will be driverless and the space created by removing the driver cabin will be available for passengers.

"Commuters will be looking straight out on to the track," said Anand. However, in the first year of operations, the trains will have a temporary partition for drivers.

The trains will be painted in the line colours — for instance, the Brown Line (Mukundpur-Shiv Vihar) will have trains with brown stripes. For passenger comfort, there will be back support along the glass panels at the ends of a row of seats, more grab rails and modified grab poles.

The trains made by Hyundai ROTEM are being sourced from South Korea.

Anand said, "The first train will be inducted in May 2015 in Mukundpur. Twenty trains will come from South Korea while the rest of the 61 trains will be manufactured in Bangalore." Delhi Metro will induct four trains (of six coaches each) in each corridor. The cost of each coach is Rs 8.5 crore. Delhi Metro had paid Rs 7.28 crore per coach when it purchased them in 2007 from Bombardier

@Abhishek901

I understand that a schematic map can be a bit disorienting at first glance when you are used to geographic ones.

Nevertheless a schematic map is useful at providing all necessary information on a very reduced space, legible on a 20x20cm paper print or a mobile phone screen.
It is here to complement a geographic map and help you memorize the main features of the network and easily retrieve information you are looking for such as connections or station names.

In my Delhi map the center is enlarged to make room for all most relevant information while the outskirts are reduced.

Inside the ring road the map is actually very close to geography, not only representing accurately the main East-West and North-South lines axis but even setting the stations quite close to where they are really located with only minor deformations.

Outside the ring road nevertheless the lines become merely station lists and do not stick to their real geographical orientation (especially lines 1 and 5) in order to make them fit the reduced space available for the map.

Here is my schematic map on top of the geographical map of Delhi showing how closely the design is sticking to geographical reality (inside the ring road of course) and at the same time achieving consistency and simplification.





@World8115

Unfortunately I don't speak or read Hindi and therefore must rely solely on information provided by English wikipedia for the Indian station names.
That's why there are only English labels for train stations on the loop line or bus stations of the Mudrika service since I couldn't find the Indian transcription.

Your help would be highly appreciated here, if you could point out the mistakes and give me the correct names I would immediately update the map.

Just English names will do well I believe. Bilingual makes it more cluttered.

I found the origin of the typos, for some reason when you copy-paste a label in Hindi into Illustrator the software mixes the characters' order.
I rewrited all labels using a patch and everything is fine now.
