New Delhi (NVI): Prime Minister Narendra Modi will flag off country’s first-ever fully automated driverless metro train service on the 37-km long Magenta Line of Delhi Metro, DMRC said.

The Magenta Line connects Janakpuri West and Botanical Garden metro stations.

The commercial operation of these new-generation trains, set to be a major technological feat, will begin after the event.

Furthermore, the Prime Minister will also launch National Common Mobility Card (NCMC) for travel on Airport Express, Delhi Metro Rail Corporation added.

Dubbed as ‘One Nation One Card’, the NCMC is an inter-operable transport card that allows holders to pay multiple kinds of transport charges, including using metro and bus services across the country, toll, parking and even for retail shopping and withdrawing money.
