"Services began at 4 pm today. The frequency of trains on this new section during peak hours would be 5 minutes and 26 seconds," a senior Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) official was quoted as saying by NDTV.

Services on the 9.63 km long Dilshad Garden-Shaheed Sthal section, an extension of the Delhi Metro's Red Line to Ghaziabad was also opened for public, a day after PM Modi flagged off the section, making the DMRC foray into the interiors of Ghaziabad for the first time.
