National Capital Region Transport Corporation (NCRTC) - a Joint Sector company of Govt of India and States of Delhi, Haryana, Rajasthan and Uttar Pradesh is mandated for implementing the Regional Rapid Transit System (RRTS) project across the National Capital Region, ensuring a balanced and sustainable urban development through better connectivity and access.

Impact on National Capital Region

Sustainable Development

Fast transit system will support in achieving the goal of sustainable urban development in NCR region including National Capital Territory of Delhi. It will activate processes which will enable sustainable economic and social development with environmental protection, for future generations.

Balanced Economic Growth

Seamless high speed connectivity will result in balanced economic development across the Region leading to economic benefits to all strata of society and many nodes of development rather than all economic activity happening at one place.

Lower Emission and Reduced Congestion

The environment friendly and very low emission RRTS will carry many times more people at high speed (Average 100 kmph) while occupying just 3 m space on land thus reducing congestion on the roads. Overall it will significantly reduce the total emission from the transport sector in NCR.

Later this year, tenders are due to be called for construction of a 180 km/h railway between Delhi and Meerut, the first line of the future National Capital Regional Rapid Transit System.
Occupying a stratum between Indian Railways’ conventional long-distance inter-city and suburban trains, with some of the hallmarks of an urban metro, RRTS will introduce a new approach for India, offering fast, frequent and high capacity intra-regional rail services. Improved connectivity is needed to address the environmental and mobility challenges posed by a rapidly urbanising society.
