“Delhi-Meerut Welcomes Namo Bharat: A Journey of Excellence”

'Delhi-Meerut's Fast Lane: Namo Bharat Begins Its Journey'

On Friday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi opened a new transportation corridor called the Delhi-Ghaziabad-Meerut PRTS (Public Rapid Transit System) corridor. He did this by revealing a special plaque at the Sahibabad station. This corridor is like a special path for fast and efficient transportation, making it easier for people to travel between these cities. The plaque is like a special sign to remember this important event.

Starting this Saturday morning, a new type of train service called “Semi-High Speed Namo-Bharat” will begin on a 17-kilometer section of India’s first Regional Rapid Transit System (RRTS) rail corridor. This train service will be faster than regular trains, making travel quicker. It’s a part of a bigger project, and this 17-kilometer section is the first part open to the public. It’s a step towards improving transportation in the region.

Last Friday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi officially opened a new train corridor called the Delhi-Ghaziabad-Meerut RRTS (Regional Rapid Transit System) section. To celebrate this, he unveiled a special plaque at the Sahibabad station. Think of it like a grand opening of a new faster train route and the plaque is a special sign to remember this important event. This will make traveling between these cities quicker and more convenient.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi wanted to see for himself how the new train system works. So, he took a ride on one of the trains. This shows that the government is serious about improving regional travel with fast and advanced technology. They want to make travel between cities better, faster, and more convenient for everyone. It’s like the leader trying out a new way to make transportation better for the people.

The new trains in the Regional Rapid Transit System (RRTP) scheme have been given the name ‘Namo Bharat.’ The very first set of these ‘Namo Bharat’ trains will start operating on the Delhi-Meerut route beginning from this Saturday, October 21. Prime Minister Narendra Modi officially launched these trains on the day before, which was Friday. It means that these special trains are now available for the public to use for travel between Delhi and Meerut.

The RRTP scheme is all about making local travel faster and more comfortable. In the first phase of this plan, Prime Minister Narendra Modi laid the foundation for a 17-kilometer road connecting Delhi  Ghaziabad and Meerut on March 8, 2019. Now he’s inaugurating the first part of this route between Sahibabad and Duhai Depot stations. The stations on this route are Ghaziabad, Guldhar, and Duhai.

RRTPs are medium-speed trains that can go as fast as 180 kilometers per hour. In this scheme, trains will run frequently with one coming every 5 to 15 minutes. There are eight such routes planned in the national capital area with priority given to the Delhi-Meerut Delhi-Alwar and Delhi-Panipat routes. This means people in these areas will have more convenient and faster train options for their daily commutes.
