Prime Minister Narendra Modi flagged off the Regional Rapid Train Namo Bharat and travelled with co-passengers on Friday. The ambitious Rs 30,000 crore Delhi-Ghaziabad-Meerut RRTS Corridor project aims to link Delhi to Meerut in under an hour, passing through key urban centers like Ghaziabad, Muradnagar, and Modinagar. The entire 82.15 km corridor is on track to be operational by June 2025.

The Prime Minister Office posted on X: “PM @narendramodi is on board the Regional Rapid Train Namo Bharat with co-passengers who are sharing their experiences, including on how this train service will have a positive impact.”

Meanwhile, the Congress Party took a dig at PM Modi for the rebranding, drawing parallels to the ‘Namo Stadium’.

RapidX, the nation’s pioneer semi-high speed regional rail service, has been rebranded as ‘NaMo Bharat’. The Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) announced that PM Modi will commence the NaMo Bharat service connecting Sahibabad and Duhai Depot stations in Uttar Pradesh, heralding the advent of the RRTS era in India.

The PMO lauded NaMo Bharat as a ‘transformational’ initiative poised to revolutionize regional transportation. It promises high-speed intercity trains every 15 minutes, with the flexibility to increase frequency to every five minutes as needed.

The 17-km priority stretch of the Delhi-Ghaziabad-Meerut RRTS Corridor, spanning Sahibabad to Duhai Depot, encompasses five vital stations. Noteworthy safety features include CCTV surveillance, an emergency door-opening mechanism, and direct communication with train operators. Although trains can achieve speeds of up to 160 kmph.
