It passes through Dharuhera in Rewari district and alwar district of rajasthan (only 5 km)and Tauru and Sohna in Gurgaon district.

The Rewari-Dharuhera-Tauru-Sohna-Palwal road existed much before NH 8 was built in 1960s. It was the only road from Rewari to Gurgaon and Delhi as NH 8 did not exist then. When NH 8 was built in the 1960s, the stretch from Masani to Dharuhera became a part of NH 8.

The road starts from Rewari and joins NH 8 at Masani barrage. It does not exist for about 5 km from Masani barrage to Dharuhera. On this stretch, it is the same as NH 8 and therefore non-existent as a separate road. Then from Dharuhera it again starts. The stretch from Rewari to Masani barrage is more popularly known as Delhi road because it leads to Delhi.
