Delhi metro is all set to inaugurate its first section of Magenta line on December 25. This line will connect between Botanical Garden and Kalkaji, reducing the travel time between Noida and South Delhi by about half an hour.

Passengers travelling to South Delhi from Noida had to switch at Mandi House and the total travel time would take around an hour. Now with the introduction of the Magenta line the travel time will come down to 20 minutes.
The passengers travelling to Faridabad will also be benefited as they just have to change at Nehru Place and take the Violet line for their destination. This will save a lot of time of the commuters.
