National Capital Region Transport Corporation – Memorandum & Articles of Association Signed for new shell company

In a move that is expected to transform the National Capital Region, the various stakeholders have signed the Memorandum & Articles of Association (MAA) for setting up a new shell company called National Capital Region Transport Corporation (NCRTC). The MAA was signed by all the constituent states of National Capital Region (Delhi, Haryana, Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh) , Ministry of Railways, National Capital Region Planning Board (NCRPB) and Ministry of Urban Development, Government of India in New Delhi today.

The NCRTC is being set up for designing, developing, implementing, financing, operating and maintaining Regional Rapid Transport System (RRTS) in National Capital Region (NCR) to provide comfortable and fast transit to NCR towns and meet the high growth in transport demand.

The company will have a share capital of Rs 100cr on 50:50 ownership pattern ie 50% being owned by the Central Government and 50% state governments. The company will implement individual RRTS corridors either through separate Special Purpose Vehicles (SPVs) or on Public Private Partnership(PPP) mode.

The three priority corridors identified for development in the first phase are:

  • Delhi-Sonipat-Panipat
  • Delhi-Gurgaon-Alwar
  • Delhi-Ghaziabad- Meerut
