The Pink Metro Line was opened to the public in four stages, beginning from March of 2018 to December of the same year.

Then, the Pink Metro line was constructed in parts and finally it reached completion in December of 2018, when the Lajpat Nagar – Mayur Vihar Pocket I corridor was inaugurated.
Here is how from March 2018 to December 2018, the pink line became operational:

The Delhi Metro network grew to almost 327 km, with 236 metro stations, with the inauguration of the most recent corridor on 31st December 2018.

- Station: Hazrat Nizamuddin
- Station: Mayur Vihar Phase I
- Station: Mayur Vihar Pocket I
The expected completion date for the section between Mayur VIhar Pocket I and Trilokpuri is 31st August 2019, due to the delay in construction of a 1.5 km long viaduct at Trilokpuri. This has resulted in the Pink Line having two independent train lines, with trains running from Majlis Park and going up to Mayur Vihar Pocket I and trains coming from Shiv Vihar ending at Trilokpuri Sanjay Lake.
