The Delhi Government would go ahead with the construction of the Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) corridor on all the proposed routes, the Rajya Sabha was informed on Thursday.
The Government of National Territory of Delhi has reported that on the BRT corridor from Ambedkar Nagar to Delhi Gate, the design has been made so that there is minimal dislocation, Minister of State for Urban Development Ajay Maken said in a written reply.
There is no plan by the Government of Delhi to hold back implementation of BRT construction on other proposed routes, he said.
Delhi government has sanctioned an expenditure of Rs 215 crore for the Ambedkar Nagar to Delhi Gate BRT corridor.
"No funds are being borne by the Union Government," he added.
