India: Delhi-Meerut Regional Rapid Transit System Investment Project - Tranche 1

Sovereign (Public) Project | 51073-003 Status: Active

The investment project will finance the first of three prioritized corridors of the planned regional rapid transit system (RRTS) network in India's National Capital Region (NCR). The Delhi-Meerut RRTS will pass through the densely populated sections of the NCR, connecting Delhi to Meerut in the state of Uttar Pradesh. The 82-kilometer corridor will provide safe, reliable, and high-capacity commuter transit services between various locations along the corridor. The investment project will finance rail track, signaling, station buildings, and maintenance facilities. It will also support capacity and institutional development of the National Capital Region Transport Corporation (NCRTC), a joint venture company of the Government of India and states of Delhi, Haryana, Rajasthan and Uttar Pradesh, that is mandated to implement the RRTS project across the NCR.

Description The investment project will finance the first of three prioritized corridors of the planned regional rapid transit system (RRTS) network in India's National Capital Region (NCR). The Delhi-Meerut RRTS will pass through the densely populated sections of the NCR, connecting Delhi to Meerut in the state of Uttar Pradesh. The 82-kilometer corridor will provide safe, reliable, and high-capacity commuter transit services between various locations along the corridor. The investment project will finance rail track, signaling, station buildings, and maintenance facilities. It will also support capacity and institutional development of the National Capital Region Transport Corporation (NCRTC), a joint venture company of the Government of India and states of Delhi, Haryana, Rajasthan and Uttar Pradesh, that is mandated to implement the RRTS project across the NCR. A grant from the Japan Fund for Poverty Reduction will promote improved mobility and economic opportunities for women and differently abled groups along the corridor. All contracts are expected to be awarded during project 1 implementation. Tranche 1 will finance the first slice of the contract packages under the investment project. It will also support various capacity building activities for the NCRTC, and initiatives to improve the mobility and economic opportunities of women and differently abled people.
Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy Plans for transport arteries to enhance regional connectivity have become critical for inclusive and sustainable development of the NCR. The NCR Regional Plan 2021 recommends integrating regional centers with each other and the capital through an integrated transport network to reduce pressure on Delhi and induce growth and development of settlements in NCR. The Functional Plan 2032 was then developed to detail out the specific polices of the Regional Plan related to the transport sector. The Functional Plan, approved by the NCR Planning Board in November 2009, recommended an integrated multi-modal transportation system for NCR to improve the mobility of both people and goods. The plan specifically includes a proposal for the construction of eight regional rapid transit system corridors, three of which are being prioritized for implementation, to connect Delhi to other cities in the NCR with high-speed commuter trains. Strengthening of urban mass transit systems and increasing environmental sustainability of cities through the development of railways is recognized in the country partnership strategy of ADB for India. The development of rail-based mass transit systems is governed by three main policies: National Urban Transport Policy (2006), National Transit Oriented Development Policy (2015), and Metro Rail Policy (2017).
