The first phase of the Delhi–Ghaziabad–Meerut Corridor is likely to be opened in early 2023.

India's first regional rapid transit system (RRTS) corridor coming up between Delhi and Meerut, will adopt the new-age automatic fare collection (AFC) system - which will be developed and executed by Paytm Payments Bank Ltd, along with a tech firm.

The National Capital Region Transport Corporation (NCRTC), implementing body of the RRTS project, will partner with Paytm to develop the first-of-its-kind AFC system in the country for passengers. The AFC system is in line with the government's vision to achieve the National Common Mobility Card (NCMC) standard for all public transport modes.
