NEW DELHI (Metro Rail News): Shri V K Saxena, Lieutenant Governor (LG) of Delhi has given his approval for the allotment of 297 sqm of land in Jangpura for the Delhi-Meerut RRTS corridor project. This land, which belongs to the Delhi Urban Shelter Improvement Board (DUSIB), had been pending for the past two years. The approval is crucial for the implementation of the Regional Rapid Transit system (RRTS) project. The RRTS corridor will provide a faster rail service between Delhi and Meerut, reducing travel time significantly. The project is being led by the NCRTC.

The allotment of the land is in line with the national importance and public interest associated with the Delhi-Ghaziabad-Meerut RRTS project, according to a senior official. The land is needed to establish connectivity between the stabling yard at Jangpura and the Ring Road at Nehru Nagar, as part of the ongoing construction of the 82.15-km semi-high-speed rail corridor.

While other government agencies have already transferred their land to the NCRTC (National Capital Region Transport Corporation), the DUSIB had not completed the transfer until now. The approval from the LG paves the way for the project to move forward smoothly.

Initially, there was some confusion regarding the approval process, with the urban development minister stating that it did not require the approval of the LG. However, the chief secretary clarified that since land matters fall under reserved subjects, the approval of the LG was necessary.

The proposal, despite not being routed through the urban development department and not being forwarded by the minister and chief minister, was deemed by the LG as significant to the public interest. Consequently, it was approved.
