Navi Mumbai Metro – Information, Route Maps, Tenders & Updates

Menu: News & Construction Updates | Overview


Navi Mumbai Metro is an urban Mass Rapid Transit System (MRTS) with 1 line being built to serve the area of Navi Mumbai (Belapur, Kharghar, Taloja & more) in Maharashtra by City and Industrial Development Corporation (CIDCO).

Construction work for Navi Mumbai Metro’s 11.10 km Phase 1 line from CBD Belapur to Pendhar with 11 stations started in November 2011 and is expected to be completed by 2023 owing to delays in receiving key approvals, poor project management by the operator and contractors involved, and a lack of general interest by the state government.

Navi Mumbai Metro is expected to be completed and opened in June 2023 , beyond its current 2022-end deadline. 

Although the Maharashtra government has released a 106.40 km master plan comprising of 6 lines, it is unlikely that it will be followed. New metro lines are expected to be announced in the coming years influenced by the construction of the Navi Mumbai Airport in Palvel – Ulwe.

In June 2019, Navi Mumbai’s City and Industrial Development Corporation (CIDCO) had given an in-principle approval to entrust DMRC with implementing the city’s Line-2 and Line-3 after which DMRC began locally recruiting in October for various posts.
