The Delhi-Meerut Rapid Rail Corridor is set to extend its service to Meerut South (Partapur Tiraaha) soon. The National Capital Region Transport Corporation’s (NCRTC) newly appointed Managing Director (MD), Kuldeep Narayan, conducted an inspection on Saturday and found the Meerut South station ready for operation. Now, the corridor awaits final clearance from the Safety Commissioner.
