First train set of India's first Regional Rapid Transit System to be handed over on May 7

The first train set of India's first Regional Rapid Transit System (RRTS) corridor will be handed over to National Capital Region Transport Corporation (NCRTC) on May 7.

Under the Make in India initiative, 100 per cent of these state-of-the-art RRTS train sets are being manufactured in India, in Savli, Gujarat, where the keys of the RRTS trainsets will be handed over to NCRTC.

These RRTS trains will be the fastest trains in India with a design speed of 180km/h, an operational speed of 160km/h and an average speed of 100 km /h.

The modern RRTS trains will have ergonomically designed 2x2 transverse cushioned seating, wide standing space, luggage racks, CCTV cameras, laptop and mobile charging facility, dynamic route maps, auto control ambient lighting system, and Heating Ventilation and Air Conditioning System (HVAC) and other amenities.

The air-conditioned RRTS trains will have standard as well as one coach of Premium class per train along with one coach reserved for women commuters.

The construction work on the RRTS corridor is going on in full swing. After the arrival of the trains, initial trial runs are expected to commence on the priority section by the end of this year.

The 17 km Priority Section, between Sahibabad to Duhai, is targeted to be commissioned by 2023 and the full corridor by 2025, as reported by ANI, a partner of TV BRICS.
