In a news set to bring joy to the people of old Gurugram, the Central Government has approved a new metro line connecting this neglected part of the millennium city to both the existing metro lines of the city: The yellow line of DMRC and the Rapid Metro Line.
So far residents of Old Gurugram have no metro connectivity and they have to depend on various private and public modes of transport to access the existing metro lines and thus get connected to new Gurugram and the rest of NCR. Expected to be operational by 2027, the new metro line will improve commerce, connectivity, and overall economic development in the region.
Spread across 28.5 km covering 27 stations, the new line will offer multi-modal connectivity with a link to IGI Airport, Dwarka Expressway, and the Indian Railways. Out of these 27 stations, one will come up at Basai Village which will connect the residents to the Sector 101-based Railway station and the Dwarka Expressway. Whereas in the second phase, this metro line will be extended to IGI Airport of Delhi.
For those unaware, areas like Hero Honda Chowk, Subhash Chowk, Palam Vihar, and sectors 3, 4, 5, 7, 9, 10, etc. come under Old Gurugram. Being relatively inaccessible and further from Delhi, they haven’t witnessed the kind of residential and commercial growth the newer part of Gurugram has. So if you are planning to buy properties there, you’d better hurry as they will get costlier once the new metro line comes up.
Facts about the New Metro Line
It will connect old Gurugram with New Gurugram and the rest of NCR through metro rail.
It will have 27 stations spread across 28.5 km. These are HUDA City Centre – Sector 45 – Cyber Park – Sector 47 – Subhash Chowk – Sector 48 – Sector 72A – Hero Honda Chowk – Udyog Vihar Phase 6 – Sector 10 – Sector 37 – Basai Village – 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 Phase 4 – Udyog Vihar Phase 5 – Cyber City.
The metro station at Basai Village will have a 1.85 km dedicated spur connecting it to the Dwarka Expressway and the Sector 101-based Railway station of Indian Railways.
The line will start at Huda City Centre Metro station on the yellow line of DMRC and end at the Cyber City station of the Rapid Metro Line through areas of Old Gurugram. The yellow line will connect the residents of old Gurugram to Delhi NCR.
Haryana Mass Rapid Transport Corporation Ltd (HMRTC) will build this line at an allotted budget of Rs 5,452.72 crores.
Break-up of the Cost:
Central Government Share Rs. 896.19 crores
Haryana State Government Share Rs. 1,432.49 crores
Local bodies contribution (HUDA): Rs. 300 crores
PTA (Pass through assistance – loan component): Rs. 2,688.57 crores

Direct Airport connectivity:
At present, you have to take a complex detour via the Yellow and then the Magenta Line to reach terminal 1 of IGI Airport. Whereas to reach the IGI Airport, you have to go all the way to the New Delhi metro station via the Yellow line and then take the Airport Express Line from there. Hectic, right?
Once this metro line becomes operational in 2027, the plan is to extend it to IGI Airport.
The millennium city of Gurgaon with an estimated population of 25 lakh and growing, is expected to have a daily ridership of 5.34 lakh by 2026, 7.26 lakh by 2031, 8.81 lahk by 2041, and 10.70 lakh by 2051.
The Total Existing Metro Network of Gurugram:
At present, Gurugram has only 17 km of metro connectivity which will extend to 45 km once this new line becomes active. Still, it will pale in comparison to the national capital Delhi which has 390 km of metro lines. Out of this 17 km, 5.3 km is part of the DMRC Yellow line while the remaining 11.7 km is contributed by Rapid Metro.
