This chapter discusses the development of the metro rail system in Delhi. It details the various phases of the project from proposal to implementation. Implemented by the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) as a joint ownership by the Government of India and Government of Delhi, the Delhi Metro completed 65 km of Phase I in record time. By September 2010, it became a 186 km network with a cost of around Rs 29,800 crore. The metro has been making operational profits from the first day and it has set benchmarks for project execution quality and delivery within cost and time as well as in operations and maintenance.
