Prime Minister Narendra Modi is expected to inaugurate the 6.6-km Delhi Metro Blue Line extension on March 8, official sources said. The prime minister is also slated to inaugurate the 9.4-km-long Dilshad Garden-New Bus Adda section, an extension of the Red Line on Friday.

The extended Blue Line corridor will also bring the Blue Line close to the recently-opened Aqua Line, which connects Noida and Greater Noida. Sector-52 station of the DMRC's Blue Line is almost 300 m away from the Aqua Line’s Sector-51 station operated by the Noida Metro Rail Corporation (NMRC).

The Red Line extension, also likely to be inaugurated by the PM this week, comprises eight stations -- Shahid Nagar, Raj Bagh, Rajendra Nagar, Shyam Park, Mohan Nagar, Arthala, Hindon River Station and New Bus Adda.

The Delhi Metro's current operational span is 327 km with 236 stations. After opening of the two corridors, it will extend to over 342 km with 250 stations.
