The station names mentioned in the notice indicate a rename might have recently taken place. If true, then Sector 14 is now Kharghar Village, Sector 11 is now Kendriya Vihar, Utsav Chowk is unchanged, CIDCO Science Park is now Belpada, Sector 7 is now RBI Colony, and CBD Belapur is now Belapur Terminal.
A new deadline for starting commercial operations has not been announced, but with MahaMetro now onboard, things are starting to move along opening up the possibility of a mid-2022 partial opening of at least the northern section (Pendhar – Central Park) with the rest opening later in 2022.
