New Regional Rapid Transit System (RRTS) Trains To Be Known As “NAMO BHARATH”


In a momentous development for India's transportation landscape, Prime Minister Narendra Modi is set to inaugurate the Regional Rapid Transit System (RRTS), and these state-of-the-art trains will be known as 'Namo Bharat.' This initiative is expected to transform the way people travel in the National Capital Region (NCR) and bring about a significant improvement in connectivity and convenience.

The RRTS Project - A Giant Leap in Indian Transportation:

The RRTS project is a groundbreaking venture aimed at enhancing the speed and efficiency of inter-city travel within the NCR. The 17-km priority section of the Delhi-Ghaziabad-Meerut RRTS Corridor is poised to be open for passengers from October 21, 2023. This section will run between Sahibabad and Duhai Depot, encompassing five stations: Sahibabad, Ghaziabad, Guldhar, Duhai, and Duhai Depot.

Key Highlights of the Delhi-Ghaziabad-Meerut RRTS Corridor:

  1. Swift Connectivity: The Delhi-Ghaziabad-Meerut RRTS Corridor, developed at a staggering cost of over Rs 30,000 crore, will create a seamless connection between Delhi and Meerut. This will drastically reduce travel time, making it possible to traverse the distance in less than an hour, all while passing through vital urban centers such as Ghaziabad,

  2. Prime Minister's Vision: The foundation stone for this corridor was laid by Prime Minister Modi on March 8, 2019, marking his visionary approach to advancing transportation infrastructure and promoting urban development.

  3. Multiple RRTS Corridors: The Delhi-Ghaziabad-Meerut RRTS Corridor is just one of several planned RRTS projects in the NCR. In total, eight RRTS corridors have been identified for development in the region, with three corridors prioritized for Phase-I implementation. These include the Delhi-Ghaziabad-Meerut, Delhi-Gurugram-SNB-Alwar, and Delhi-Panipat corridors, with each expected to bring substantial improvements to regional connectivity.

  4. Environmental Benefits: The RRTS system has been designed with a focus on environmental sustainability. With cleaner energy sources and the potential to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, it's a significant step towards a greener future.


The inauguration of 'Namo Bharat' RRTS trains and the opening of the Delhi-Ghaziabad-Meerut corridor mark a pivotal moment in India's quest for improved transportation. The commitment to providing faster, more efficient, and eco-friendly transit options is bound to positively impact the lives of millions in the NCR. With Prime Minister Modi's visionary leadership, this ambitious project symbolizes India's dedication to enhancing infrastructure, urban development, and environmental sustainability. As we look forward to the inauguration, we eagerly anticipate the enhanced connectivity and convenience that 'Namo Bharat' RRTS brings to our lives.
