The Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) on Tuesday has given a presentation to the Yamuna Expressway Industrial Development Authority (YEIDA) on the first phase of the 35.64 km metro line expected to connect the proposed Jewar airport via Knowledge Park 2 in Greater Noida.

The corridor will have total of 25 stations, out of which 24 stations will be along the elevated part and one will be underground. The cost of phase I is estimated to Rs. 6,969 crores with a deadline of completion of the project are March 2025.
