Anand Vihar station's platform is underground, with structural work nearing completion and the track-laying process underway. Challenges during the project included managing the proximity of tunnels to existing infrastructure, with one tunnel having a minimum distance of 100 mm from the existing metro station.

The trial run for Namo Bharat trains between Duhai and Meerut South stations of the RRTS corridor commenced on December 29. The NCRTC aims to involve more women employees than men in the operations of the upcoming 25-km stretch, as per earlier sources.
