Bengaluru Metro’s purple line, spanning an impressive 42.85 km, connecting Challaghatta to Whitefield, is set to be fully operational from today. Namma Metro said that the two pending lines, Krishnarajapuram–Baiyappanahalli and Kengeri–Challaghatta are in order and the Whitefield – Challaghatta will be fully operational from Monday.

According to a Hindustan Times report, there will be no formal or informal event on the inaugural day.

The Commissioner for Metro Rail Safety (CMRS) had already given the safety nod to the newly constructed KR Puram – Baiyappanahalli and Kengeri – Challaghatta stretches on the purple line.

Bengaluru Central MP PC Mohan said that Prime Minister Narendra Modi had directed the Bangalore Metro Rail Corporation Limited (BMRCL) officials to launch it at the earliest.

“PM Shri @narendramodi Ji has directed BMRCL to commence services on the new stretches of the #PurpleLine (Challaghatta to Kengeri and Baiyappanahalli to Whitefield), without postponing operations for a formal inauguration ceremony with VIP presence,” an X (formerly Twitter) post by the official said.
