INDIA: PM Modi will flag off the two parallel Mumbai Metro corridors, Lines 2A and 7 from Gundavali station. The foundation stone of the station was laid in 2015, but the project took a longer time to get completed. 

The much-awaited Metro Line 2A (yellow line) will now run from DN Nagar Andheri to Dahisar, whereas Line 7 (red line) will kick off from Dahisar East to Andheri East.
