Prime Minister Narendra Modi inaugurated the Delhi Metro's Mundka-Bahadurgarh section on 24 June and said his government's priority is to build convenient, comfortable and affordable urban transport systems in cities across the country.

Inaugurating the latest section via video conference, he said there was a direct link between connectivity and development. In his address, he said:

Our government brought out a policy relating to metros. This is because we felt aspects relating to metro systems need greater coherence and work as per a basic set of standards. Wherever metros are being built in India, the Centre and the respective state governments are working together.

The 11.2-km-long fully-elevated Mundka-Bahadurgarh corridor is part of the Delhi Metro's Green Line.

The Mundka-Bahadurgarh stretch, with seven stations, would be an extension of the existing Green Line (standard-gauge tracks) from Inderlok to Mundka.

Union Urban Development Minister Hardeep Puri and Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar attended the function in Bahadurgarh.

After the opening of this corridor, the entire Inderlok-Bahadurgarh section would become 26.33 km long.

The Delhi Metro network will now expand to 288 km with 208 stations.
