Although the Delhi Metro is not the first in India it can be said it is the first of its kind in the country. The metro railway network has almost covered the entire city and follows with continuous endeavors of expansion. Most of the neighboring areas and suburbs will be covered by the metro railway by the end of 2020.This rapid transit system serves Delhi, Gurgaon, Noida, and Ghaziabad and carries over 1.8 million passengers every day.
The Delhi Metro network consists of six lines with a total length of 193 kilometres with 145 stations (35 are underground, five are at-grade, and the remainder are elevated). Delhi Metro is being built and operated by the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation Limited (DMRC) and is owned by the State along with the Government of the territorial capital of Delhi. The organisation is under administrative control of Ministry of Urban Development, Government of India. Construction started in 1998, and the first section, on the Red Line opened in 2002, followed by the Yellow Line in 2004, the Blue Line in 2005, its branch line in 2009, the Green and Violet Lines in 2010, and the Delhi Airport Metro Express in 2011.
The Delhi Metro network consists of 6 lines with a total length of 193 kilometres with 145 stations, but this figures change rapidly.
The Delhi Metro is being constructed in phases. Phases I-II are now ready. Phases III (105km) and IV (108.5km) are planned to be completed by 2015 and 2021 respectively, with the network spanning 413km by then.
Phase III: The plans are to cover Yamuna Vihar-Mukundpur corridor, which will be the longest line in the Delhi Metro network that will cover around 55.9 kms.

It will also give coverage of the Jamia Milia University.The significant thing about the Phase III metro is that it will have 23 interchangeable stations for seamless connectivity.
