Gurugram Metro line has received the Public Investment Board’s (PIB) approval, and now only final clearance from the Union Cabinet is awaited. The Haryana Mass Rapid Transport Corporation (HMRTC), which will oversee the execution of this corridor, expects the work to start by March next year. The 28.8km long and ₹6,000-crore ‘Gurgaon Metro’ corridor with 27 stations has a 2026 deadline and will bridge a large gap in the connectivity grid, taking the metro to many densely populated areas of the satellite city and the Cabinet clearance will pave the way for work to begin by March next. This will be Gurgaon’s own metro line and will be operated by the state government itself.
According to the DPR, the approval has been granted for 27 elevated stations — Huda City Centre, Sector 45, Cyber Park, Sector 47, Subhash Chowk, Sector 48, Sector 72A, Hero Honda Chowk, Udyog Vihar-6, Sector 10, Sector 37, Basai, Sector 9, Sector 7, Sector 4, Sector 5, Ashok Vihar, Sector 3, Bajghera Road, Palam Vihar Extension, Palam Vihar, Sector 23A, Sector 22, Udyog Vihar-4, Udyog Vihar-5 and Cyber City. A station in Sector 101 will be part of a spur to the Dwarka Expressway. The corridor will have an interchange with Rapid Metro, which runs between Cyber City and Sector 56 and to a proposed route from Palam Vihar to Dwarka Sector 21 — the DPR for which was approved by the state government last month — at Rezang La Chowk. When both lines are completed, it will be possible to reach IGI airport through the metro grid by changing to the Airport Express line at Dwarka. Currently, Gurugram has only 17-km of metro line - the 5.3km stretch of Delhi Metro’s Yellow Line and the 11.7km Rapid Metro and no expansion of the metro service has taken place since 2017, when the second section of the Rapid Metro on Golf Course Road (6.8km) was opened to commuters.
