NEW DELHI (Metro Rail News): Shri VK Saxena, Lieutenant Governor of Delhi has given the green light for the transfer of land from the Irrigation and Flood Control (I&FC) department to the National Capital Regional Transport Corporation (NCRTC). This is for the implementation of the Delhi-Meerut Regional Rapid Transport System (RRTS) project.

The land transfer, which includes areas in Anand Vihar and Patparganj, will facilitate multimodal integration, the construction of RRTS stations, traffic circulation, and the building of a ventilation shaft at these locations, according to officials from the LG office.
The request for land was made by NCRTC on June 10 for the Delhi-Meerut RRTS RapidX corridor and the construction of a ventilation shaft in Patparganj. The I&FC department finally submitted the file to the LG for approval after a three-year wait.

The NCRTC requires temporary access to a land area measuring 2,297 square meters at Anand Vihar, on the Trunk Drain-II bank, for construction purposes. In addition, a permanent land area of 8,129 square meters is required for the RRTS station, traffic circulation, and MMI. Furthermore, NCRTC has identified the need for an additional 340 square meters of land on a permanent basis to accommodate a ventilation shaft, as well as 953 square meters of temporary land in Patparganj along the Ghazipur drain for construction activities. The overall land parcel of 11,719 square meters has received approval from LG Saxena.

The I&FC department has assessed the transfer rates for the land parcels. It has quoted a cost of ₹14,82,80,757 for the transfer of land on a permanent basis and ₹1,13,80,623 for a temporary basis.

The priority section of the RapidX corridor in Ghaziabad, spanning 17 kilometers, is expected to be launched later this month, bringing significant improvements to the transportation network.
