Background

The National Capital Region Planning Board (NCRPB) had prepared a `Functional Plan on Transport for NCR-2032`, which recommended eight RRTS Corridors to connect important towns of the NCR with a high speed rail based commuter transit system.

A Task Force set up by the Planning Commission for the RRTS for the NCR in its meeting held in December, 2009 proposed the construction of a Special Purpose Vehicle (SPV) called NCRTC, for the implementation of a comprehensive integrated multi-modal sub­urban commuter transportation system for the NCR, to start with a corpus of Rs.100 crore.

A Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) was signed in June, 2011 by the Government of India, the NCRPB and the State Governments of Uttar Pradesh, Haryana. Rajasthan and the Government of the National Capital Teritory of Delhi (GNCTD) for the formation of the NCRTC.
