Okhla Vihar metro in Abul Fazal Enclave: Signboard leaves residents scratching their heads

Many residents were left stumped today when passed by Abul Fazal Enclave market. They saw a signboard on the left hand a few meters from the fruit market and on it was written Okhla Vihar Metro.

metrookhlavihar“Okhla Vihar Metro in Abul Fazal Enclave, really shocking. Though many people were happy and looked at it as a sign that metro will get operational in a few days time, residents don’t know what is happening,” said a resident.

When OT.COM tried to find out from an official at the metro that how come it has been named Okhla Vihar, he too appeared stumped. It is Okhla Vihar, he claimed in astonishment. But when pointed out that it is Abul Fazla Enclave and hence it should be named after the locality, he said he had no idea.

It is understood that in a few hours time, the police station is to be inaugurated. An official on the spot said the Delhi Police Commissioner is coming to cut the ribbon at 4 pm and hence the preparations are going on in full swing.

This could be something new for several Okhla residents, but a local NGO had raised the issue with authorities with little success.

  1. Name of the metro was decided to be Okhla Vihar long time ago. You can search for old maps which showed the planning of this phase of metro, they all show Okhla vihar, not abul fazal Enc.
    Also in some of the DTC buses which come here have Okhla Vihar written on destination-signboard.

  2. Actually first it was planned at Okhla Vihar but Metro facing some land problem there, to resume work at earliest they shift the station to this current location.
