The project will be implemented by Noida Metro Rail Corporation (NMRC) and the Uttar Pradesh government says it expects the 7km five-station Noida Sector 71 - Greater Noida Sector 2 section to open by the end of 2020. The remainder of the second phase is due to be completed by March 2021.

The initial 29.7km section of the Aqua Line from Sector 71 to Depot Station is expected to open later this month.
