 Thereafter the DPR will be processed for approval of the Uttar Pradesh government and the Centre," NMRC Managing Director Lokesh M said.

 The DPR has been prepared by the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) for NMRC, which operates the Aqua Line between Noida and Greater Noida.

 According to the DPR, the new line will run between Sector 142 station on Aqua Line of Noida Metro and Delhi Metro's Botanical Garden station.

 Botanical Garden station is an interchange station for the Blue Line and the Magenta Line of the Delhi Metro.

 The statement said there will be eight new elevated stations on this line -- Botanical Garden, Noida Sector 44, Noida Office, Sector 97, Sector 105, Sector 108, Sector 93, Panchsheel Balak Inter College and Sector 142 (already existing).  "This project will provide ease of connectivity to the residents within both cities of Noida and Greater Noida and further connect them to the Delhi Metro network. Botanical Garden will serve as an interchanging station between NMRC's Aqua Line and DMRC's Magenta & Blue Line," Lokesh M said.

 "This project will be beneficial to all the commuters travelling for Noida-Greater Noida towards Delhi and vice-versa," the senior IAS officer added.
