As work on the Metro line to Noida is nearing completion, Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) has charted out the fare structure and estimated time for the journey from the suburb to different parts of the Capital. For residents of the city, who commute between Delhi and Noida regularly, the Metro line will come as a boon as it will provide a fast, comfortable and affordable link to the heart of the city.The Metro line will take an estimated 38 minutes from Noida to Central Secretariat, 42 minutes to Kashmere Gate, 53 minutes to Shahdara and 65 minutes to Rohini East Metro stations. The fares have been computed at Rs 15, Rs 16, Rs 18 and Rs 20 respectively. For those headed to the railway station, which is about 19 km away, the journey will take 36 minutes and will cost Rs 15. The corporation is also planning to run feeder services to the Noida stations to enable more and more people to take the Metro link. The extension of Line 3 (Dwarka to Indraprastha) to Noida is nearing completion as more than 75% of the structures are already up. The 7.3 km long elevated line, which will largely run over the central verge, is expected to ferry an estimated 53,000 commuters daily by 2011. The Metro will have six stops in Noida — at Sector 15, Sector 16, Sector 18, Botanical Garden, Golf Course and Sector 32 City Centre.The stations, which are all on road, will be aesthetically more pleasing. The corporation is planning to design the exteriors in a manner that they match with the surroundings. For instance, the Sector 18 station will have a malllike exterior to make it look like the other buildings around.All the stations will double up as foot overbridges for non-Metro users too and parking facilities for 50-100 cars will be available.
