‘Namo Bharat’ is launched as PM Modi opens the Delhi-Ghaziabad-Meerut RRTS Corridor.

The cities of Ghaziabad, Muradnagar, and Modinagar will be reached via the Delhi-Ghaziabad-Meerut route in less than an hour.

Friday saw the official opening of the Delhi-Ghaziabad-Meerut RRTS Corridor’s priority segment at Sahibabad RapidX Station by Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Additionally, he signaled the start of India’s Regional Rapid Transit System by launching the RapidX train from Sahibabad to Duhai Depot. RRTS trains will now be branded as “Namo Bharat,” according to an announcement made on Thursday by Union Minister Hardeep Singh Puri.

“The RRTS project’s priority corridor, which corresponds to the expectations of millions of people, is prepared to begin. On October 20, Prime Minister Narendra Modi will dedicate it to the country. ‘Namo Bharat’ will be the name of the nation’s RRT system, according to Puri in a post on social media.

The Indian Railways already operates semi-high-speed trains throughout the nation under the name “Vande Bharat.”

“I am very honored and fortunate to be here today,” said Philipp Ackermann, the German ambassador to India, who was in attendance at the event. The quickest train in India so far, it’s a fantastic project. From Meerut to Delhi, a shuttle train runs under the NCRTC. It moves at 160 kilometers per hour. German railroad corporation Deutsche Bahn is in charge of running it.

The National Capital Region (NCR) has designated a total of eight RRTS corridors for development. Out of them, Phase I implementation will focus on three of these corridors. These comprise the corridors connecting Delhi to Ghaziabad, Meerut, Gurgaon, SNB, and Panipat.

The Delhi-Ghaziabad-Meerut RRTS, whose overall project cost is more than 30,000 crore, will shorten the travel time between Delhi and Meerut by more than an hour by passing via the cities of Ghaziabad, Muradnagar, and Modinagar.

According to a government statement, RRTS will offer high-speed intercity commuter trains every 15 minutes, with the option to reduce the frequency to as little as every 5 minutes as needed. The train’s design speed is 180 km/h.

On March 8, 2019, Prime Minister Modi laid the cornerstone for the corridor connecting Delhi, Ghaziabad, and Meerut.
