The underground Central Secretariat – Qutab Minar Metro corridor of Delhi Metro opened for commuters recently. The 12.53km long corridor is a part of Central Secratariat (CTST) – HUDA City Centre (Gurgaon) Metro corridor. It directly links the city with Gurgaon – another satellite town of the National Capital Region (NCR) after NOIDA in Uttar Pradesh. It has 11 metro stations – Central Secretariat, Udyog Bhawan, Race Course, Jor Bagh, INA, AIIMS, Green Park, Hauz Khas, Malviya Nagar, Saket and Qutab Minar. Line 2 which is already operational gets extended with this corridor. The entire corridor will now be called Line 2 (Yellow Line). Once it is integrated with the already operational Qutub Minar – Gurgaon corridor (14.47km), it will have a length of approximately 45km and will connect North Delhi (Jahangirpuri), South Delhi (Green Park, Saket, AIIMS, Hauz Khas) and Gurgaon (HUDA City Centre). It will be possible to now reach Gurgaon from Central Secretariat in 48 minutes. The minimum fare continues to be र8 and the maximum fare र30.
