NEW DELHI (Metro Rail News): Prime Minister Narendra Modi will likely inaugurate the 17km Duhai to Modinagar stretch of the Delhi-Meerut RRTS corridor. 

Trial Runs 

NCRTC conducted the trial run of the Namo Bharat trains on the 12.1 km stretch between Modinagar South & Meerut South on the 82 km Delhi-Meerut RRTS Corridor at the end of December last year. 

CMRS Nod 

The CMRS inspection for the stretch is already underway & the safety clearance/approval may likely come at the latest by the end of Monday or Tuesday, ahead of the likely inauguration on Wednesday. 

An Online Inauguration 

PM Modi is likely to inaugurate the stretch virtually during his visit to West Bengal, from where he will also inaugurate several other metro projects. 

Covering stations 

On Thursday, the NCRTC announced that work on the Meerut (south) station is still pending, potentially delaying its inclusion in the upcoming section slated for opening. The NCRTC plans to concentrate on a 17km stretch, excluding the Meerut (south) station.

Delhi-Meerut RRTS 

The Rapid Rail Transit System (RRTS) is a comprehensive mass rapid transit network spanning 82.15 kilometres, linking Delhi’s Sarai Kale Khan with Ghaziabad and Meerut. The construction of the Delhi-Ghaziabad-Meerut corridor is currently in progress, with a total expenditure of nearly Rs 30,000 crore. Prime Minister Modi inaugurated the initial phase of the priority corridor, covering 17 kilometres and featuring five stations: Sahibabad, Ghaziabad, Guldhar, Duhai, and Duhai Depot.

On October 20th, Prime Minister Narendra Modi officially launched India’s first RAPIDX train, Namo Bharat, off Sahibabad Station. These trains are engineered to reach a maximum speed of 180 km/h, offering ticket prices ranging from Rs 20 to Rs 50 for standard coaches and Rs 50 to Rs 100 for premium coaches.

The RRTS initiative encompasses semi-high-speed rail corridors connecting Delhi to Meerut in Uttar Pradesh, Alwar in Rajasthan, and Panipat in Haryana.
