The stretch, which falls in Ballbhgarh, Haryana, will be entirely elevated and will cover Sant Surdas (Sihi) station and Raja Nahar Singh station.

The new section of the violet line is one of the eight lines of the Delhi metro and connects Kashmere Gate metro station in New Delhi with Escorts Mujesar station in Faridabad. At present, It comprises 32 metro stations with a total length of 40.35 Km.
