A new section of Delhi Metro’s Pink Line is all set to inaugurate on 31st
Commuting in Delhi is set to become easier. As far as public transport is concerned, Delhiites have seen a number of additions to the transport system that will surely make their daily commute a lot less hectic. Adding to the good news is the fact that Delhi Metro’s Pink Line Pocket 1 corridor is being inaugurated on the 31st of December as a New Year’s gift for residents of the national capital region.
Delhi Metro has announced that it will open the 9.7 km Pocket-1 corridor that runs between Lajpat Nagar-Mayur Vihar, this Monday.
The Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) confirmed that the commuters will be able to use the Pocket-1 corridor the very same day. Necessary approvals for the launch of passenger operations were granted earlier this week after a thorough inspection was conducted by the Commissioner of Metro Railway Safety (CMRS).
Union Minister of State (Independent Charge) Hardeep Singh Puri and Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia are set to inaugurate the corridor on December 31 at 11am from Metro Bhawan.
There are five stations on the new section which include Lajpat Nagar (existing), Vinobapuri, Ashram, Hazrat Nizamuddin, Mayur Vihar Phase-1 and Mayur Vihar Pocket-1. Out of which, Mayur Vihar Phase-1 and Mayur Vihar Pocket-1 are elevated stations and the rest three are underground.
The Pink Line which is already operational from Majlis Park to Lajpat Nagar and from Trilokpuri to Shiv Vihar, comes under Phase-III of the DMRC network. The Lajpat Nagar-Mayur Vihar Pocket-1 corridor is a part of the 59-km-long Pink Line, which runs from Majlis Park-Shiv Vihar and Shiv Vihar-Majlis Park.
After the launch of this new corridor, Mayur Vihar Pocket-1 and Trilokpuri stations will be the only stretch remaining on the Pink Line where work started late.
One of the best places in Lucknow to enjoy a calm and serene evening is the Gomti riverfront. The riverfront sees a large footfall everyday and is a preferred spot for family picnics and health enthusiasts who need a quiet place for a long walk. This February, the people of Lucknow saw Gomti Riverfront utilised to its full potential when a horde of demonstrations and exercises happened here during the Defence Expo 2020.

Have you ever been running late to the airport because of the sheer number of bags you have? If your answer is yes, then IGI airport has got you covered. Now, in a new initiative by the DIAL (Delhi International Airport Ltd) you can have your stuff transported to the IGI airport directly from your place of stay.
Delhi International Airport Ltd., the operators of IGI airport have partnered up with a Bengaluru based company called CarterX. In fact, this facility is not limited to be availed by only those taking off from Delhi, it can also be used to get your luggage delivered to your residence when you touchdown at IGI.
What's the update?
In a bid to make travelling to and from IGI airport easier for passengers, DIAL has undertaken a partnership with CarterX to start a service where a commuter's luggage can be transported to and from the IGI airport directly from their place of residence. This, essentially, is a step towards making checking in to the airport a breeze.
Additionally, if you're short on time and are planning to take the direct metro link to the airport, this is a great way to ensure that you don't have to lug your stuff around.
To avail the service, you will have to pay a fee based on the number, weight and size of the bags. The fee will also take into account distance to and from the airport, meaning the prices are going to be dynamically triggered. At any rate, the base fare is ₹299, which goes up depending on the aforementioned factors. For every 5 kilograms over 20kgs, an additional ₹100 will be charged.
This is certainly one of the most passenger forward moves we have seen DIAL take. The IGI airport is at par with the best airports in the world and this is something that should take its rating all the way up. DIAL and CarterX have both stated that with this service, they aim to cover the entirety of Delhi, including neighbouring states- Haryana, Uttar Pradesh and Rajasthan.
