New Delhi, Feb 12 : The trial runs on the 20.6 km-long Majlis Park-Durgabhai Deshmukh South Campus stretch of the upcoming Pink Line (Majlis Park-Shiv Vihar) are "succesfully" over, and the section is awaiting clearance from the Commissioner for Metro Rail Safety (CMRS), Delhi Metro said on Monday.

"The papers for scrutiny and detailed examination by CMRS are under submission to his office and after these are cross checked, examined and scrutinised in depth by the office of CMRS, further action is expected," Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) said in a statement.
