|Within 12 years of its inception, the Delhi Metro is on track to achieve feats surpassing the world’s historic metro stations. The completion of Delhi Metro's Phase III will not only increase the total length of its network in the national capital but also make Delhi a city with one of the highest number of metro stations anywhere in the world, according to a DMRC spokesperson.|
The Delhi Metro network will have more than 241 stations after Phase III which will make it only the seventh city in the world to have more than 200 metro stations. In Asia, Delhi will have the highest number of metro stations after Shanghai, Tokyo, and Seoul. Most of the metro networks with more than 200 stations are operated by multiple operators, while in Delhi, apart from the six stations of the Airport link, all other lines are run by Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC).
