New Delhi: Three months after trial runs began on Badarpur-Faridabad corridor, Delhi Metro has applied for the safety clearance of this section paving the way for its much-awaited launch.

Metro will make its foray into the satellite town of Faridabad through the fully elevated 14 km-long stretch, five years after it first entered Haryana at Gurgaon.

"The application requesting Commissioner for Metro Rail Safety (CMRS) to inspect the Faridabad corridor has been submitted by DMRC and we are awaiting a date for inspection of the corridor," a metro spokesman said.

The corridor is an extension of the existing Mandi House -Badarpur Violet line (Line 6) of the network.

Apart from the Mujesar terminal station, the upcoming stations on this section are Sarai, NHPC Chowk, Mewala Maharajpur, Sector 28, Badkal Mor, Old Faridabad, Neelam Chowk Ajronda and Bata Chowk.
