India's capital Delhi is the centre of the National Capital Territory of Delhi Region (NCR), one of the fastest-growing and biggest metropolitan regions in the world with a current population of 18 million. Despite a very high proportion of non-motorised road users travelling by rickshaw and bicycle, the NCR is suffering from the consequences of growing motorised transport. Traffic jams and severe pollution such as noise, particulates and CO2 emissions are impacting the health of Delhi's inhabitants.

For decades, buses were the only available means of public mass transit. With its gradually expanding route network, the Delhi Metro has offered modern, comfortable, safe and healthy mobility in the capital since the start of this millennium. "All our Metro trains have proved to be very efficient, comfortable and reliable. The comfort of travel is one of the main reasons for the popularity of the Delhi Metro," says Anuj Dayal, Executive Director, Corporate Communications, Delhi Metro. "The Delhi Metro today is the mass transportation backbone of the entire NCR region. We are carrying close to three million people every day and the numbers will further increase in the coming years." The underground system mastered its first major international test in 2010, the year in which the Indian capital hosted the Commonwealth Games.
