I have visited MTR's site,it said it is the consultant of Delhi metro.

Just look at the head of Delhi metro's ROTEM broad gauge train :

And MTR's ROTEM train (K-Train)


Both trains also has almost same interior designs and same motor sound

You may also look at the image of Delhi metro's Airport express line's trains below. These are from an entirely different company and country, with different speed and specifications and for a different purpose but still these trains look similar to the two trains you showed above. Similarity in appearance proves nothing. Not only that, there are two more rolling stocks with Delhi metro which appear different from these trains.

You mean the ROTEM standard gauge train and Bombardier?
I think DRMC's Bombardier train head looks a bit similar to MTR's C-Train (Based on ROTEM K-Train and Bombardier MOVIA)

the interior of the airport express is very similar.

Delhi


Hong Kong


Yes the Hong Kong MTR is the technical consultant for Delhi. Notice the Delhi metro trains have very similar safety and visual design features as the MTR. Also the Delhi metro does use some form of Hong Kong's famous Rail+Property model.

MTR wasn't/isn't officially the consultant of Delhi's system, but they did play a consultant's role in providing expertise in construction techniques, best practices and initial training to the staff in HK (the current COO of Keolis is one of them). MTR still has a presence in Delhi - the Operations Control Centre in Shastri Park is run in association with them to provide maintenance and operational training to each new batch of staff.

Reliance Infra - the original operator of the Airport Express line in fact hired MTR to be the engineering and project management consultants for the airport express line. That's how CAF got on board and delivered similar looking train-sets to Delhi (as seen above). This is the only line where MTR has been the "official" consultant in Delhi.

If i remember, Delhi Metro ROTEM broad Gauge stocks' maintenance and operations is done by MTR,since its design should be based on MTR ROTEM K-Train.
Has anyone notice that,their labels are similar?
Delhi metro's "Please Mind the Gap"Label (2002-2008(?) has a very similar train logo with MTR's "Please Mind the Gap"

After making commuting smoother between Delhi and the prime NCR cities — Noida, Gurgaon, Ghaziabad and Faridabad —the Metro network is likely to expand to Sonepat and Panipat in Haryana, Alwar in Rajasthan and Meerut in Uttar Pradesh.

The urban development ministry has decided to lay three corridors connecting these far-off NCR towns with the national capital on a priority basis, said Chittaranjan Kumar Khaitan, joint secretary, ministry of urban development.

He said that the process of implementing these corridors would be taken up soon by the ministry in consultation with the respective state governments.
These corridors include Delhi-Sonepat-Panipat ((111 km), Delhi-Gurgaon-Alwar (180 km) and Delhi-Ghaziabad-Meerut (90 km).

“The detailed project reports have been completed and construction is likely to start soon,” Khaitan told HT.

The Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) would be involved in these projects as consultants and project developer and a total of Rs. 72,170 crore would be spent to commission these.

According to the NCR Planning Board sources, these metro projects would not only reduce road accidents and congestions on roads, but also offer safe, fast and smooth transportation to people.

Background

RRTS will be a rail based system that will connect small but fast developing towns in the NCR region. The goal of RRTS is to reduce the dependence of commuters on road based transportation to a combination of road-cum rail transportation system.

Client: National Capital Region Planning Board

An article from August 02, 2013

NCRTC – a Regional Rapid Transit System for NCR, finally takes off

CHANDIGARH: With the stakeholder states signing the Memorandum and Articles of Association of National Capital Region Transport Corporation (NCRTC) in New Delhi, the much awaited project of RRTC connecting the major cities of NCR region has finally taken off.

Besides Haryana, the main constituent States of NCR include Delhi, UP and Rajasthan, besides the Ministry of Railways, National Capital Region Planning Board and Ministry of Urban Development.

The NCRTC has been set up to take up Regional Rapid Transit System (RRTS) and Multi Modal Transport System in National Capital Region. Haryana will have to bear 7% of the total project which is totally a centrally sponsored project.

Initially NCRTC will take up the three priority corridors Delhi-Sonipat-Panipat (111 km), Delhi-Gurgaon-Alwar (180 km) and Delhi-Ghaziabad-Meerut (90 km). The work of the corridors is likely to start in about 6 months. First of all Delhi-Sonipat-Panipat corridor will be taken up, because its alignments have been finalized and the DPR has been approved by Haryana Government.

On behalf of Haryana Government, Chief Secretary P.K. Choudhery signed the Memorandum, whereas on behalf of Delhi, Rajasthan and Uttar Pradesh, the Memorandum was signed by their Chief Secretaries. T.C. Gupta, Principal Secretary, Town & Country Planning and Urban Development, Haryana, was also present on this occasion.

The New Company will have an authorized share capital of Rs. 100 crore on 50:50 ownership pattern with 50 per cent being owned by the Central Government through Ministry of Urban Development, Ministry of Railways (22.5% each), NCR Planning Board 5% and 50% State Governments (12.5% for each State). The company will have total of 8 government nominee directors, 4 from Central Government with Secretary (UD) as ex-officio chairman. Each state would have one nominee director on the Board.

The Company would implement individual RRTS Corridors through either separate SPVs or on PPP mode. About funding pattern for each individual corridor the NCRTC Board will consult the individual stakeholders. The Ministry of Railways will contribute Rs. 22.5 crore only in the Company and would not be investing in individual corridors. As per the feasibility reports the total cost of the three corridors would be about Rs. 72,000 crores.

National Capital Region Planning Board (NCRPB) had prepared ‘Functional Plan on Transport for NCR-2032′, which recommended eight RRTS Corridors to connect various important towns of NCR with high speed rail based commuter transit system.

The Secretary, Ministry of Urban Development, Dr Sudhir Krishna, who chaired the meeting, said that each State is required to set up a high power committee under the Chairmanship of Chief Secretary, so that various state level issues of planning, coordination and an approvals and resolved at the earliest.

The implementation of the proposed RRTS corridors by NCRTC is expected to provide the much needed rapid transport facility in NCR. This will also result in planned development of NCR and will also help in decongestion of NCT of Delhi.

Four rapid transit corridors of NCR identified in Haryana

Article from Feb 27, 2014

CHANDIGARH: The National Capital Region Planning Board (NCRPB) has identified four regional rapid transit system (RRTS) corridors falling in Haryana sub-region of NCR. These corridors will help in fast movement of men and material thereby effecting decongestion of roads, less pollution and lesser travel time.

This was stated by Haryana chief minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda, who also heads the town and country planning department, on Wednesday during question hour in the Haryana Vidhan Sabha.

These corridors are Delhi-Gurgaon-Rewari-Alwar, Delhi-Soneipat-Panipat, Delhi-Faridabad-Ballabhgarh-Palwal and Delhi-Bahadurgarh-Rohtak.

"The functional plan on transport for national capital region prepared by National Capital Planning Board has identified eight regional rapid transit system corridors, out of which, four corridors fall in Haryana sub-region of NCR,'' he said.

Of these, two corridors -- Delhi-Gurgaon-Rewari-Alwar and Delhi-Sonepat-Panipat -- would be developed on priority. A preliminary survey and feasibility study has been carried out. Feasibility study for the Delhi-Rohtak-Hisar (via Bhiwani) corridor is also being undertaken, he said.

The National Capital Region Transport Corporation (NCRTC) has been formed for designing, developing, implementing, financing, operating and maintaining regional rapid transit system (RRTS) projects in the NCR and to provide comfortable and fast transit, to meet the growth in transport demand. Haryana has also contributed its equity share to NCRTC, amounting to Rs 12.50 crore, through Haryana Urban Development Authority (HUDA), the CM said.

Land acquisition issue

Haryana government was on the receiving end in the assembly on Wednesday as INLD MLA Ashok Arora took on parliamentary affairs minister Randeep Singh Surjewala over the Punjab and Haryana High court and Supreme Court striking down land acquisitions and issuing strictures against the state government. Arora also sought to know whether the government was ready to form a judicial commission in this regard and accused it of facilitating the builders. Defending the government, Surjewala stated that government has not released land of any farmer to any colonizer and challenged Arora to prove anything contrary.

In a major relief for people commuting in the National Capital Region (NCR), the Metro network is set to reach towns near Delhi – Sonepat and Panipat in Haryana, Alwar in Rajasthan and Meerut in Uttar Pradesh.

The urban development ministry(MoUD) has decided to lay three corridors — Delhi-Sonepat-Panipat (111 km), Delhi-Gurgaon-Alwar (180 km) and Delhi-Ghaziabad-Meerut (90 km) – at a cost of Rs. 72,170 crore.
“The detailed project reports have been completed and construction is likely to start soon,”

Chittaranjan Kumar Khaitan, MoUD joint secretary, told HT at a CII conference on Friday. The process of implementation will be undertaken in consultation with state governments, Khaitan said.

The last five years have seen major expansion of the Metro network with prime NCR cities of Noida, Gurgaon, Ghaziabad and Faridabad coming under the umbrella of the Delhi Metro.

The Metro projects will not only reduce road congestion and accidents but also offer smooth transportation, said sources in the NCR planning board.

The Delhi Metro Rail Corporation will be involved in these projects as consultants and project developer.

The ministry is keen to complete the projects in a few years time, Khaitan added.

In a bid to implement these Regional Rapid Transit System (RRTS) projects for the NCR, the ministry constituted the National Capital Region Transport Corporation Limited (NCRTC) recently.

“The RRTS will play an important role in redefining the urban mass transportation in India. Eight RRTS corridors have been recommended under this system and three have been prioritized,” said Khaitan.

Sneak peek: Newly constructed Janpath metro station

X-posting, originally posted by forumer Bhartiya in another thread.


The new Janpath Metro station, part of the Central Secretariat-Mandi House stretch, is a riot of colours
with beautiful artworks on its walls and the artificial ceiling, and large sections of the station bathed in
bright maroon. (IE Photo: Praveen Khanna)


This is in sharp contrast to the new Mandi House station, which is similar in appearance to other Metro
stations. (IE Photo: Praveen Khanna)


Both the stations are almost complete, workers at the stations say. “In fact, work at the Janpath Metro
station for the past many months has only centred on beautification and refinement of what we had first
built. They have put in a lot of effort on this station,” a supervisor said. (IE Photo: Praveen Khanna)

A huge structure depicting Jantar Mantar — with the structure in black and the stairs in gold and silver —
adorns a prominent wall of the station, flanked by other structures sporting the same colour scheme.
There are depictions of people too, but in blue, pink, yellow and maroon, among others.
(IE Photo: Praveen Khanna)


On the other hand, beautification at the Mandi House Metro station consists largely of two large panels
that DMRC officials say depict the history of the Mandi House area. (IE Photo: Praveen Khanna)


“The panels answer questions like why the area is called Mandi House and who was the king of the
mandi,” a Metro spokesperson said. Potted plants in plenty can be seen at both stations along the walls.

Delhi Metro will soon get new trains. On Wednesday, Bombardier, whi- ch had provided coaches for Delhi Metro Rail Corporation in Phase I and II, announced it has won an order for more coaches from Delhi Metro.

The order is for Line 5 (Inderlok to Mundka), Line 6 (Central Secretariat to Badarpur/Kashmere Gate) and the new line corridor of Mukundpur to Shiv Vihar. The order is worth Rs 956 crore.

The extensions will add almost 35km of double track and 23 stations to the existing 39km and are due to be completed in 2016. "Bombardier's project includes the design, manufacture and commissioning of the integrated train control and signalling system, including control centres, trackside and onboard equipment," said a Bombardier spokesman. The sections will extend Line 6 from Central Secretariat to Kashmere Gate and Badarpur to YMCA Chowk , and Line 5 from Mundka to City Park.
