Indian/Aryan Swatika symbol has clockwise orientation, while Nazi symbol has anti-clockwise orientation.

Would like you to explain this in detail

Major religion is different from official religion.

Features of Delhi metro-

1) Most stations have left side platforms.
2) Most of the network is elevated.
a) Only one station of line 1(red), 3 (blue) & 4(blue-branch) is at graded.
b) Line 2(yellow) is mostly underground. Small parts of line 3 (blue) & 6 (violet) are also underground.
c) Rest of the network is elevated.
3) Highest station is Karkardooma on line 4, Deepest is Chawri Bazar on line 2 (excluding express metro towards Airport)
4) Busiest station is Rajiv Chowk on line 2
5) Depots are as follows:-
Red line - Shastri Park
Yellow line - Khyber Pass, Sultanpur
Blue line - Najafgarh, Yamuna Bank
Green line - Mundka
Violet line - Sarita Vihar

I heard entire line 5 (green) is elevated, and Sarita Vihar is also elevated. So are those eponymous depots also elevated? It is really challenging!!

Another question – Which are the nearest metro stations of Khyber Pass & Najafgarh?

These depots are at grade.

Nearest metro stn to Kyber Pass is Vishwa Vidyalaya. Nearest stn to Najafgarh depot is Dwarka.

Great metro. Too bad they're nearing the end of the initial expansion stage.

?? The initial expansion stage is not even half covered. There were 4 phases planned (5 year each) from 2000 to 2020 and only two have been covered. Construction for third one is going to start shorty.

Each phase was bigger than previous phase. Phase-I was 65 km, Phase-II was 125 km, Phase-III is 147 km and Phase-IV too is expected be 100+ km. Subsequent phases will be based on the requirement at that point in time.

So they are now finishing phase two.
Phase I was the beginning.
Phase II was the initial expansion stage.
The rest are subsequent expansion stages.
Am I missing something?

Ok, so that's your terminology. Fair enough.

No explanation needed, IMO. I've often wondered why New Delhi didn't arrange its first three lines so they'd all cross in a triangle, like the Soviets usually did:


Surely the Yellow Line between Connaught Place and Kashmere Gate is very overcrowded. Or perhaps there are turnbacks so that extra trains can be provided there?

Ok, now I got it. Yes, the Kashmere Gate - Central Sect part is overcrowded because for interchanging from Red line to Blue line or Green line or Violet line or vice versa, one must pass through this section of yellow line.

However, DMRC is extending the Violet line from Central Secretariat to Kasmere Gate (with an interchange with Blue line at Mandi House stn) which will relieve pressure off this yellow line section.

Also many new new North-South connections are being built which will relieve congestion on this section, such as ring road line which will interchange with red and blue line twice (in west Delhi and in east Delhi).
