The government may soon create a National Capital Region Transport Corporation (NCRTC) to expedite the construction of three regional rapid transit systems (RRTS) that would connect Delhi with Panipat, Alwar and Meerut.

Officials said the National Capital Region Planning Board (NCRPB) had earlier identified eight lines for the development of rail-based RRTS corridors of which three — Delhi-Panipat, Delhi-Alwar and Delhi-Meerut - were assigned priority by a panel appointed by the Planning Commission.

It was also suggested the formation of NCRTC to develop, run and maintain the proposed Metro corridors.
