NOIDA (Metro Rail News): National Capital Region Transport Corporation (NCRTC) plans to submit the Ghaziabd-Jewar RRTS’s DPR by April 4. 

Meetings Being Held 

The NCRTC is already in for presentations for the upcoming route alignment. Presentations and meetings are already being held regularly between both. 

Submission by April 4 

“The NCRTC informed that it will ready the detailed project report of this project for further progress on April 4. After studying the DPR, we will send it to the Uttar Pradesh government for requisite approvals. Once the UP government and the government of India give all required approvals, the work on this project will be taken to the next stage,” said Arun Vir Singh, chief executive officer of the Yeida.

Speed Revolution 

“The NCRTC will operate the RRTS and Metro on this corridor. The operation of the Noida airport is set to start in September-end this year. The entire proposed route of 25 stations will be developed in phase I. We have asked the NCRTC to design the operation of RapidX in such a way that it should not take over 50 minutes to reach IGI from NIA. With the maximum speed of 150 KMPH, it is possible to achieve this travel time,” said Singh.

Assignments done so far. 

The NCRTC is ready with the ridership evaluations, conducting topographical surveys, designing the alignment, and planning stations along the route. Simultaneously, ongoing surveys encompass geotechnical analysis and environmental and social impact assessments.

Projected Ridership 

“The alignment will have a ridership of 2.95 lakh passengers per day in 2031, growing to 5.23 lakh passengers in 2041 and to 6.32 lakh per day in 2051,” said Singh.


The DPR will be sent to the state government for approval. 


The feasibility report has suggested the following alignment: 

  1. 37.15 Km long Metro/RRTS between Ghaziabad & Kasna 
  2. 35.11 Km Long RRTS corridor between Kasna & Noida Airport

The first stretch will have 22 stations, 15 for the metro & 7 for the RRTs, while the second will have four stations. 

Metro/RRTS between Ghaziabad & Kasna 

The proposed local metro module between Ghaziabad & Kasna will have 15 stations: Siddharth Vihar, Sector 16C in Greater Noida, Ecotech 12, sectors 2, 3, 10 and 12 in Greater Noida, near Surajpur, Malakpur, Ecotech 2, Knowledge Park 3, Gamma 1, Omega 2, Phi 3 and Ecotech IE.

Ncrtc has suggested a local metro module on this route as it passes through the residentially populated areas of Noida & Greater Noida. The project, through this, aims to ensure that the residents of Ghaziabad, Greater Noida & YEIDA not only enjoy RRTs but also popper accessibility to metros etc.  

RRTS Corridor between Kasna & Noida Airport

The Second stretch between Kasna & Noida Airport will be 35.11 km long with a total of 4 number of stations. The proposed stations are Dankaur, Yeida North (sector 18), Yeida Central (sector 21, 35) and the Noida airport.

The NCRTC has plans to develop the second stretch, too, with the same module as the first stretch, precisely with a parallel metro alignment to serve plans of the authorities of a township or something crops up in the region. 


The proposed plan for the funding is as follows: 

Agency Share 
Government of UP 50%
Government of India 20%
YEIDA + Greater Noida 30%

Noida Airport 

The commencement of operations for the Noida airport is anticipated by December 2024, with a projected capacity to accommodate approximately 71 million passengers daily by the fiscal year 2042-43. To facilitate a seamless connection between the airport and its surrounding region, the state government has approached the NCRTC to prepare a feasibility report for constructing a high-speed train corridor to facilitate efficient transportation to and from the airport.
