The latest route of Delhi Metro (grey line) between Dwarka-Najafgarh will have three stations – Dwarka, Nangli and Najafgarh — out of which Dwarka and Nangli are elevated stations while Najafgarh is underground. 

The initial target to complete the line is by the end of this (September) month, however, this route is further being stretched by another 1.18 km till Dhansa Stand, which is expected to be completed by December 2020.
