Construction on the first section of the line, called Metro 2A (between Dahisar and D.N. Road), began in November 2016 and is expected to be completed in May 2021. This section will be 18.589 km (11.551 mi) long and comprises 17 of the 39 stations that form part of this route.
Recently the Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA) decided to rename 15 of the total 17 stations on the Dahisar-DN Nagar Metro-2A line. According to the officials, station names were changed in response to demands from citizens and to make them more location-specific.
For instance, the Upper Dahisar station was renamed as Anand Nagar station on the demand of the residents of the Anand Nagar area, where the station is located.
