NEW DELHI (Metro Rail News): The National Capital Region Transport Corp. Ltd. (NCRTC) has received a captive non-public network licence from the Department of Telecommunications (DoT) to install a high-speed data network along the Delhi-Meerut railway corridor, two government officials stated.

NCRTC is responsible for carrying out the Regional Rapid Transit System (RRTS) project throughout the National Capital Region. It is a joint venture between the Centre, Delhi, Haryana, Rajasthan, and Uttar Pradesh states. It operates under the administrative control of the housing and urban affairs ministry.

“NCRTC is the first captive non-public network licensee for its essential LTE network to be installed on the corridor between Delhi and Meerut,” an NCRTC official stated on condition of anonymity.

A DoT representative claims that the company received its licence a few weeks ago. “There were ten other applicants, but NCRTC received it first. Several other applications are being processed “he added, requesting anonymity.

The licence is only valid for ten years and is limited to the company’s owned or leased properties. It is also not permitted to connect its network to other commercial telecom service providers’ networks.

By 2025, the first-ever regional rapid transit system should be operational, connecting an 82 km route between Delhi and Meerut.
