One of the newly opened stations on the magenta line,Shankar Vihar station,will remain restricted from civilian use. ‚ÄúThe land for the Shankar Vihar Metro station was provided by the Ministry of Defence.As the station falls within a defence/cantonment area,only those having requisite permission or identification documents necessary for entering defence/cantonment areas will be allowed to get down there,” a DMRC official reportedly stated in an interview.

Thus,the elevated Shankar Vihar station,which falls between Vasant Vihar and Terminal 1 stations,may have brought the army cantonment area into mainstream commutation connectivity network but is still “out of network” for the common commuters.
