The Delhi metro is one of the cheapest train systems I have ever used. The best part is the Air conditioning on board in the Delhi heat. The rails are very well spread out and with the help of Google maps you can easily figure it out.

This is the most efficient way to get around the NCR i.e. New Delhi and it's satellite towns from Noida to Gurgaon to Faridabad. Visitors to Delhi should opt for this mode of transport as Delhi lacks an organized metered Taxi or Auto rickshaw system like Mumbai and Kolkata. The Metro is way better and safer than haggling with unreliable auto drivers.

Most of the sites in Delhi can be accessed through the metro. The tickets are very reasonably priced. Even the peak hour crowds are less than Mumbai local trains and metro making the journey quite comfortable. There are ample guides and maps for the various lines. It is easier and faster to get a metro card if one has to make multiple trips.

Delhi Metro is the longest Metro Network of India. If you really want to save yourself from Delhi Pollution and crowd on the roads, it is the best way to travel. Get a Metro Card for smooth entrance to the stations, otherwise you will be wasting time in queues to get a ticket. If you are going to NOIDA or Gurgaon or to Ghaziabad, Metro is the best.

In my three-day stay in Delhi, I used the metro as much as possible. It was a pleasant surprise for me to be able to take advantage of a structure such as the Delhi metro network: efficient and clean stations and trains, fast trains, a network that - alone or with the help of other means in the "last mile" - allows you to get anywhere.
Can I say it? The Delhi metro doesn't look like the city. Delhi (but almost all of India) presents contrasts between rambling places (if not distressing) and places that shine with wealth and luxury. In this context, the Delhi metro is much more than a transport network (anyway more than appreciable): it’s a powerful tool of the welfare state, of reducing inequalities, of a policy of progressive reformism..

The metro close to our hotel was a blessing. I took the Metro into the centre of Delhi. Great option from buses, taxis and tuk tuk. It was quick and easy to access.

Hint : make sure you find out from the locals when the busy times are. Very fast so know where you need to get off. December cold during day where warm clothes and good footwear

The Delhi metro system is a clean, efficient and comprehensive system for getting around the congested city. I found it really useful for visiting the main sites, some would require a walk, but that's life. It's especially useful for staying further out from the more expensive areas and the metro is so cheap by western standards and is a great way to save money to get around the city.
