The move came after the recent line between Majlis Park and Durgabai Deshmukh South Campus station, the first 20.6 km section, was started.
A DMRC spokesperson said, “With frequent trials between Durgabhai Deshmukh South Campus and Lajpat Nagar, the section is likely to get green flag by July. Also the formalities as to testimony for inspection by Commissioner for Metro Rail Safety (CMRS) was completed with some other important prior approvals.”
