Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) has suggested to the state government that connecting Indore, Ujjain, Pithampur with Regional Rapid Transit System (RRTS) will be beneficial in terms of future traffic. This experiment has been successful between Delhi and Ghaziabad. DMRC has proposed three routes. Among these, Indore-Ujjain-Pithampur joint route has been said to be better. It will be of 85 km. 17 thousand crores will be spent on this. With this, the distance between Ujjain, Indore and Pithampur can be covered in about 1 hour. It just takes about 4 hours.

Actually, DMRC has studied the daily traffic coming and going from Indore-Ujjain, Ujjain-Pithampur and Indore-Pithampur and nearby cities Dewas, Dhar. Currently, out of 10.3 lakh people, 3 lakh commute from nearby cities. By the year 2028 this number will increase to 4 lakh. It will be 4.51 lakh in 2031 and 6.38 lakh after 17 years.

This is RRTSThis is also a high-speed rapid transit system like the metro. It is called Regional Rapid Transit or Rapid Rail Transit System. It runs on rail network, viaduct or underground track. It can have 3 to 9 car units. Its speed is also higher than the metro. In this the number of stations is less.

The journey between Indore and Ujjain will be 20 to 25 minutes. With this, instead of coming to Indore for a job, people will be able to go to offices and factories from their cities and villages.
