RRTS has been making headlines after Union Minister for Housing and Urban Affairs Hardeep Puri said that the government of NCT of Delhi has not agreed to fund RRTS sections to Rajasthan and Haryana. The development comes after the Board of the National Capital Region Transport Corporation had in December approved the construction of the Delhi-Gurugram-SNB corridor – the first installment of the longer Delhi-Gurugram-Alwar corridor. It was estimated to take five years to complete this section of the project. The proposed corridor is expected to cost RS 37,000 crore. The Delhi-Meerut RRTS project is being developed at a cost of whooping Rs 30,274 crore.
