Delhi Metro update
The Violet Line which till Thursday was functional between Central Secretariat and Sarita Vihar was extended till its final destination under Phase-II on Friday. The three stations that the Metro touched base with included Mohan Estate, Tughlaqabad and Badarpur. By 6pm, Delhi Metro Rail Corporation reported the footfall for each station as 2,300 (Mohan Estate), 2,950 (Tughlaqabad) and 10,000 (Badarpur). For a change, the otherwise haggard commuters from the border appeared more than eager to travel. For most of them, the journey to various far-off destinations is set to get shorter by at least an hour.
