Delhi Metro’s Blue Line extension, Noida City Center-Electronic City, expected to open soon

The 6.8 km long Noida City Center to Electronic City extension of Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC), which includes six stations - Sector 34, Sector 52, Sector 61, Sector 59, Sector 62 and Electronic City, is set to be operational by the end of this quarter.

Most stations on this corridor are expected to open by the end of this quarter but commuters going to and coming from Greater Noida might have to wait for the end of this year to find a respite in their daily travel.

The Noida City Center to Electronic City corridor is an extension of the already existing Dwarka Sector 21 to Noida City Center section of the Blue Line. This extension was supposed to be functional in September 2018 itself, but was delayed and now it is expected to roll out by the end of this year. This extension will be a part of Delhi Metro’s Phase 3 project and DMRC’s third metro line in Noida, after Noida Sector 15 to Noida City Centre and Botanical Garden to Kalindi Kunj.

Currently, the line 3 of DMRCs Blue Line is spread across a distance of 49.93-km and is operational between Dwarka Sector-21 and Noida City Centre. After the opening of this new section, the entire Blue Line will span in 56.73 kms and will be the second longest corridor of DMRC after Majlis Park–Shiv Vihar corridor of the Pink Line which is 59 km in length.

2018 has been big for commuters in all of Delhi NCR and people are hoping for a much smoother and functional metro system that would connect outskirts of Noida and Greater Noida Extension to the mainland and vice versa. Until now people have had to depend upon hiring auto-rickshaws and cabs from Noida City Center to reach further in the city where most of the offices are located. Especially people going to and from Delhi will also find a great respite with their commute as they wont have to change many modes of transportation.

The initial trials on this route have already begun, so its all about the anticipation for the commuters and the residents alike.

For most of us from Noida, the Metro is nothing short of a lifeline. A saviour in times of need, the metro has connected various parts of Noida to mainstream Delhi. Now, however, you're going to have to take a different look at these metro trains, because you can rent them for throwing parties!

Granted, that isn't really the first thought that comes to mind when one says either party or metro, but it is certainly something interesting. From now, one can book a metro coach on our favourite Aqua Line metro and celebrate any occasion. So read on to find out how it's going to go down and everything else you need to know.

What's the update?

Ever wanted to party in a Noida Metro Train coach? Well, it seems that now you can, with NMRC's latest initiative. The idea was taken from similar initiatives in Jaipur, Gujarat and Gurugram's Rapid Metro, where train coaches can be rented out for parties. Incidentally, no other foreign country implements this rule.

One can book coaches on operational as well as stationary trains. To ensure that the average commuter isn't held up, only up to 4 coaches can be booked by a party. For booking coaches, you're going to have to pay a security deposit of ₹20,000 and then ₹5,000 to ₹10,000 each hour. Paying extra will get you a decorated coach from the NMRC, so that you don't have to do anything.

In order to actually book a coach, or four, all you have to do is head over to the NMRC's website and apply at least 15 days prior to the date of engagement. Following that, the NMRC will look into the matter and you can get partying in your metro coach within no time!
