Supreme Court has ordered commencement of construction work on the Delhi metro's fourth phase, which is over 100 km long and is estimated to add around 18.6 lakh riders per day.

The phase-IV of Delhi metro will consist of six corridors Aerocity to Tughlakabad, Inderlok to Indraprastha, Lajpat Nagar to Saket G Block, Mukundpur to Maujpur, Janakpuri West to RK Ashram and Rithala to Bawana and Narela. Of the 103.94 km to be constructed, 37.01 km will be underground, while around 66.92 km will be elevated. The estimated cost of the project is 46,845 crore rupees.

Environment Pollution Control Authority (EPCA), which recently filed a report in the apex court, has said that phase-IV of the metro will add significantly to the public transport infrastructure in the city. 


A bench comprising Justices Arun Mishra and Deepak Gupta was informed by senior advocate Aparajita Singh, assisting the top court as an amicus curiae in pollution matter, that the Delhi government has agreed to give the go-ahead to phase-IV of the metro.
