The Magenta Line (Hindi: मैजेंटा लाइन) is one of the under construction lines of the Delhi Metro, a rapid transit system in Delhi, India. It consists of 25 metro stations from Janakpuri West to Botanical Garden. The Magenta Line will provide direct connectivity to Terminal 1D of Indira Gandhi International Airport. The upcoming Hauz Khas station on this line and the current Yellow Line will be the deepest Metro station at a depth of 29 metres, surpassing the record set by Chawri Bazaar station currently on the Yellow Line, at a depth of 22 metres.

For the first time in India, the construction work of two parallel tunnels were completed together at Dabri Mor station. The Janakpuri West, Dabri Mor & Dashrath Puri station on Janakpuri West-Botanical Garden line has been executed by HCC-Samsung Joint Venture. The Magenta line has planned interchanges with the Yellow, Blue, and the Violet lines of the Delhi Metro network.

Progress of civil works up to October 2016 is 95.54%. The line was initially targeted for completion in December 2016. The trials of the line began in August 2016. The line is planned to be inaugurated in two phases. The first part from Botanical Garden to Kalkaji Mandir is to be opened in April-June, and the rest to be in September 2017.
