Project Description
If provided by the financial institution, the Early Warning System Team writes a short summary describing the purported development objective of the project and project components. Review the complete project documentation for a detailed description.

According to World Bank, the objective of the proposed investment is to "improve accessibility along the Delhi-Gurugram-SNB corridor and enhance the long-term scalability and impact of rapid rail on metropolitan mobility. This will be pursued by developing the Regional Rapid Transit System (RRTS) line through the Delhi-Gurugram-SNB corridor, strengthening institutional capacity to scale up RRTS development leveraging on private capital, and developing a corridor level transit-oriented development strategy, inclusive of multimodal integration."

The Rapid Rail Transit System (RRTS) - Delhi – Gugugram - Shahjahanpur-Neemrana-Behror (SNB)Program will provide a reliable, fast, comfortable, and high-frequency rail service that will connect with feeder services in the participating cities in Rajasthan, Rewari, Dharuhera, Gurugram in Haryana, and Delhi and the Meerut Corridor at Sarai Kale Khan Station through seamless passenger movement.


Environmental Risk is “High” given the high-risk investments to be implemented in the complex and dense urban /peri-urban and rural settings of NCR, involving significant and sensitive environmental components. Environmental risks to the biophysical environment include pollution and disturbances to habitats/landscape and pedestrian-vehicular conflicts and OCHS risks to communities, workers, and staff. In addition, the Program will result in land-use changes; pollution impacts to air, water, land, fauna, flora, communities, and existing buildings (including nearby structures of importance if any, such as heritage structures, barrages) due to dust, heat, light, noise, and vibration; generation of wastes - solid wastes including plastics, construction/demolition wastes, hazardous and e-waste; micro-climatic impacts and higher risks in case of disasters (such as earthquakes, manmade disasters etc.).

The Social Risk is “High” as the Program will lead to impacts on land, structures, livelihoods, labor, and labor influx issues, SEA/SH. Even though design features such as elevated and underground tracks and stations have helped to minimize impacts, it is estimated that the Program shall impact approximately 153 ha of land including 33 ha of private land, impact structures, and involve physical and economic displacement of a few shops/street-side vendors, particularly at stations locations. Prolonged construction stage civil works are likely to result in impacts on livelihoods, access to communities, and adjoining structures. Significant labor influx is anticipated that could lead to SEA/SH and labor issues. Engaging with multitude of stakeholders, across three states – Delhi, Haryana, and Rajasthan particularly institutional stakeholders shall add to the complexity of the effective engagement. Preliminary surveys have confirmed that no tribal groups would be affected.
