Delhi-Sonipat-Panipat Regional Rapid Transit System (Delhi–Sonipat-Panipat RRTS) is a proposed, 135 km (84 mi) long, semi-high speed rail corridor connecting Delhi, Sonipat , Panipat in the National Capital Region.[1][2] It is one of the three rapid-rail corridors planned under Phase-1 of the Rapid Rail Transport System of the National Capital Region Transport Corporation (NCRTC). With maximum speed of 160 km/h and average speed of 120 km/h, commuters using the system will be able to cover the distance between panipat and Delhi in 65 minutes. The project is expected to cost 21,627 crores.[3]


The line will start from Hazrat Nizamuddin station which will allow interchange with Delhi-Alwar and Delhi-Meerut lines, as well as connectivity to the Nizamuddin railway station, Sarai Kale Khan ISBT and Hazrat Nizamuddin metro station. There will be total 17 stations on the corridor out of which two will be underground and the rest will be elevated[4]
