RRTS corridor: Meeting on Saturday to discuss funding


Ghaziabad: Meerut divisional commissioner Anita Meshram has convened a gathering of stakeholders on Saturday to speak about funding of the Delhi-Ghaziabad-Meerut Regional Rapid Transit System (RRTS) hall.

The National Capital Region Transport Corporation (NCRTC) had previous recommended ways to lift finances for the mission. But the Ghaziabad Development Authority (GDA) had objected to one of the crucial suggestions, following which the corporation submitted a brand new proposal, which will probably be mentioned on Saturday.


“The preliminary proposal submitted through NCRTC was once in keeping with the Hong Kong metro rail fashion and as in line with its salient options, 1% hike in stamp responsibility throughout Ghaziabad had been recommended, in conjunction with hike in exterior development price (EDC) on built up space. But that was once not found to be viable,” stated Kanchan Verma, vice-chairperson, GDA. “As in line with the new proposal, the fashion recommended through NCRTC is primarily based more on traces of domestic metro projects, like in Pune, Bengaluru and Jaipur, and this will probably be mentioned in Saturday’s meeting, ”she stated.


The overall price of the hall has been pegged at Rs 30,724 crore, of which UP govt will give Rs 6,500 crore. A draft document says the state govt is predicted to recuperate the associated fee in 30 years.


On Tuesday, district Justice of the Peace Ritu Maheshwari held a gathering to speak about the same factor. “Instructions have been issued to quite a lot of departments asking officials to expedite all pending work, together with land acquisition for RRTS mission,” she stated. “We’ve written to the federal government about land required for the mission and the shipping division has to phase with 15,470 square, between Vaishali and Meerut tri-section. GMC (Ghaziabad Municipal Corporation) has identified about 15,469 square,” she added.
