The Central Secretariat-Qutub Minar Metro corridor which was inaugurated and thrown open to commuters on Friday, Sep 3 will reduce travel time between Connaught Place to the satellite city to just 50 minutes.
The opening of corridor comes as a huge relief to South Delhi, which has so far been deprived of the comfort and luxury of metro.
The Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) said that the new route was planned to save commuters' time.
The entire 45 km distance will be covered in just 80 minutes, a spokesperson said.
"With the opening of this line, passengers can travel from right here to Gurgaon in a single train," said Dikshit, thanking DMRC chief E Sreedharan for his meticulous planning and execution of the Metro projects in the national capital.
