Confirming the development of the ₹2,682-crore project that will connect the densely populated areas of Gaur City and Noida Extension to the Aqua Line and the adjoining Blue Line Metro of Delhi, NMRC Managing Director Ritu Maheshwari said, “The approval for an extension of the metro rail line was given during a meeting of the Cabinet Ministers in Lucknow.”
