Metro Line 2A is a subsection of the Metro Line 2 Plan of the Dahisar-Bandra-Mankhurd line. After many changes in the corridor route stretch, MMRDA finally decided that Metro Line 2 would cover the Dahisar-Bandra-Mankhurd route.
However, the agency conducted a detailed feasibility study on the construction of the metro line 2. Consequently, MMRDA announced that the line would be built in two sections – Dahisar-Andheri West (Metro 2A) and Andheri West-Mankhurd (Metro 2B).
The official colour code for Metro lines 2A and line 2B is Yellow also called as Mumbai Metro Yellow Line.

Project History and Other Details
Planning and Construction Phase:
During his visit to Mumbai, Prime Minister Narendra Modi performed the Bhoomi puja for Mumbai Metro Line 7 and Metro Line 2A in October 2015.
The construction work on the corridor commenced in July 2016.
According to the officials, the line was supposed to start commercial operations in December 2020. However, it was delayed due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
As of September 2020, civil work was said to be completed 80%, and it was expected that by May 2021, all civil work would be completed. However, the deadline for its work completion kept changing numerous times.
The Metro 2A corridor plan covers 17 stations - Dahisar East, Upper Dahisar Station (Anand Nagar), Kandarpada, Mandapeshwar (IC Colony), Eksar, Borivali West (Don Bosco), Pahadi Eksar (Shimpoli, then Shimpawali), Kandivali West (Mahavir Nagar), Dahanukarwadi (Kamraj Nagar), Valnai (Charkop), Malad West, Lower Malad (Kasturi Park), Pahadi Goregaon (Bangur Nagar), Goregaon West, Oshiwara (Adarsh Nagar), Lower Oshiwara (Shastri Nagar) and Andheri West (D.N. Nagar).
Mumbai Metro Line 2A Opening and Inauguration
By the end of March 2022, The MMRDA had received the green signal from the Commissioner of Metro Rail Safety(CMRS) for commencing commercial operation for the public. The CMRS started inspection on these two lines on February 20th, 2022.
On April 2nd, 2022, Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray inaugurated the Mumbai Metro lines 2A and 7 on the auspicious Maharashtrian New Year Day, Gudi Padva.
Both lines are equipped with driverless train operations; however, currently, operators drive trains manually.
According to the officials, the frequency of the Metro is at every 10 minutes, which will reduce later as soon as more rakes are deployed on the lines.
As a part of the Phase 1 plan, the metro stretch covers 20KM (Dhanukarwadi–Dahisar–Aarey). The Metro will run between Dhanukarwadi on Metro Line 2A and Aarey on Line 7.
The two metro lines are running parallelly on Western Express Highway and Link road, which helps immensely to reduce road congestion and local train overcrowding on the western route.
However, since both the lines are not fully operational, the congestion on the road and train overcrowding is still present on western lines.
Mumbai Metro Line 7 and 2A Opening and Inauguration - JAN 2023
Prime Minister Narendra Modi inaugurated Phase II Metro Lines 2A and 7. Both lines will be opened for commercial operation from 21st Jan 2023 after 4.30 PM.
