    It has been some time since I have been wanting to go to Select City Walk mall. I mostly travel by metro so if I go to the mall that too would be by metro too, therefore I need to find out what the nearest metro station is to Select City Walk is?

    How far is the metro station from the mall?

    The closest is the Saket Metro Station which is just about 3 KM from the Select City Walk Mall. which means a 3 minute drive.
    Even walking up there is possible.
