Extension, Anand Vihar ISBT, Karkardooma, Karkardooma Court, Krishna Nagar, East Azad Nagar, Welcome, Jaffrabad, Maujpur (Babarpur), Gokulpuri, Johri Enclave and Shiv Vihar.
Anand Vihar (Blue Line), Karkardooma (Blue Line) and Welcome (Red Line) will be the three interchange stations on the stretch.
The 59-km line (Majlis Park-Shiv Vihar) will be the longest on the network after it becomes fully operational.
After the opening of this particular section, Delhi Metro network will encompass a 314 km lap.
The stretch connecting Majlis park in north Delhi to Lajpat Nagar in south was opened earlier in the year in two phases.
