Not happening anytime soon or not in this decade. They are planning elevated BRT, then there is expansion of Delhi Metro to 400+km and revival or Regional Rail/Sub-urban and finally for intercity a RRTS is almost ready to begin construction. Plus a Metrino/PRT service is also slated for construction from next year I presume.

I don't see where they will find time, capacity and money for Tram at this point of time.

http://www.metro-report.com/news/new...-approved.html

Delhi metro Phase IV approved
13 Jan 2017



INDIA: The Delhi city government has approved the next phase of the Delhi metro. Once the central government gives its approval, work can begin on Phase IV, which envisages a total of 103 route-km being added to the network, along with 72 stations.

Three new lines would be built as part of Phase IV. The longest of these would be an orbital line serving the south of the city, linking Tughlakabad in the east with Aerocity in the west on a 20·2 km alignment. A possible extension would add 2 km from Aerocity to Terminal 1 of Indira Gandhi International Airport, where it would interchange with the Airport Express

Gurgaon: Starting 3pm on Friday, the way people travel within new Gurgaon will change. Rapid Metro authorities have announced that commercial operation of the second phase, which connects residential areas in sectors 55-56 to Delhi Metro at Sikanderpur, will begin then.

Thursday's announcement came as a huge relief to scores of officegoers, who, till now, were forced to depend on autos and buses. Often, they complain, time taken to reach Sikanderpur from Sector 56 to catch Delhi Metro is more than the time taken to reach south Delhi by Metro. Rapid Metro authorities have claimed this journey will now take only 10-12 minutes. Commuters can use their Delhi Metro smart card to travel in Rapid Metro.

Authorities have also taken care to synchronise their timings with Delhi Metro, so that commuters do not lose precious minutes during office rush hour. "We'll begin our operations at 6.05am in three directions. The first train will leave sector 55-56 station for Sikanderpur and then on to Cyber City. The second train will leave Sikanderpur and head towards sector 55-56. The third train will start from Sikanderpur, and carry commuters alighting from Delhi Metro to Cyber City. The same schedule will be repeated at 00.36 hours past midnight, when the last trains leave," said a Rapid Metro official.

"To being with, the trains will operate at a frequency of 4-5 minutes. However, this can be increased as per requirement. We have a total of 12 trains, of which two will be kept on standby, to be used whenever frequency needs to be increased. There are two depots right now — one near Cyber City, the other near Sector 54 chowk," the official said. Sector 56 residents are thrilled with the thought they don't have to depend on buses and autos to reach the Metro station.

"This announcement could not have come at a better time. With rising temperatures and sweltering heat, it's almost impossible to travel in those rickety autos and buses, which are not dependable. A few months ago, the driver of the bus in which I was travelling to reach home from Sikanderpur, applied brakes suddenly. The impact was such my head hit a rod inside the bus and I almost lost consciousness. The bus and auto drivers are also very rude, and women don't feel safe," said Sujata Singh, a Sector 56 resident.

Others complained they dared not use their vehicles to reach Sikanderpur station because of lack of adequate parking.

"I was forced to take a bus to reach Metro station. Now that there is a Rapid Metro station 100m from where I live, I don't have to worry about reaching Sikanderpur," said Prateek Sharma, also of Sector 56.

After receiving the Commissioner of Metro Rail Safety’s approval today, the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) just announced that it will finally inaugurate commercial services on the 5.17 km ITO – Kashmere Gate underground section of the Violet Line on May 28th (Sunday). As per a DMRC notice, the flagging-off ceremony or launch event will be held off-site at their Metro Bhawan Headquarters on Barakhamba Road at 8:45 am.
Trial runs on this section, popularly known as the Heritage Line, were launched from the ITO Station in August 2016 and an independent safety assessor (ISA) conducted an inspection of the signalling system in late-March 2017. The Delhi Metro Rail Corporation submitted its application to the CMRS in April following which a 2-day inspection was conducted on May 22-23.

This will be the 4th stretch of the Violet Line to be inaugurated in the 160 km Phase 3 project (see list) and will add 3 new stations to the network at Delhi Gate, Jama Masjid & Lal Qila as well as a new station box at Kashmere Gate to form a massive 3-line interchange, India’s first, between the Yellow, Red & Violet lines:

Delhi Metro’s 5.17 km ITO – Kashmere Gate Section Inaugurated

Less than an hour ago, the Union Minister for Urban Development and Delhi’s Chief Minister inaugurated commercial services on Delhi Metro’s 5.17 km ITO – Kashmere Gate underground section of the 43.40 km Violet Line. The event was off to a quick start with a BEML train getting flagged off remotely right away from an auditorium at the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation’s headquarters on Barakhamba Road.

Popularly known as the ‘Heritage Line’, this is the last section of the Violet Line’s 9.37 km northern extension to be inaugurated under the 160 km Phase 3 project, and now only a 3.2 km elevated section is pending on its southern side which’ll connect Faridabad with Ballabgarh in Haryana.

The entire line should open by June 2018 after very long delays due to land acquisition.

Soon, reach Alwar from Delhi in 104 mins



Commuters from the Capital will soon be able to reach Alwar in just 104 minutes thanks to the Delhi-Rewari-Alwar Regional Rapid Transport System (RRTS) project, which is all set to take off. At present, the journey takes around four hours. The project was discussed at the Ministry of Urban Development on Saturday, ahead of a detailed project report being submitted for approval. The stakeholders’ workshop was attended by municipal commissioners, officials from the Town and Country Planning departments from the governments of India, Delhi, Haryana and Rajasthan, besides consultants and representatives of the construction company. 19 stations covered Outlining the features of the rail-based project, V.K.Singh, Managing Director of the National Capital Region Transport Corporation (NCRTC), said that the 180.5-km project would cost an estimated ?37,539 crore.

The project, which is expected to be completed in about six years, will be funded by the Centre, State governments concerned and other funding agencies. According to Mr. Singh, the project will include 19 stations with the first 56 km being underground and covering the stretch between ISBT Kashmere Gate in Delhi to Cyber City in Haryana. The remaining stretch of 124.5 km will be elevated. He added that the NCRTC was targeting approval by the Board in the next two months, and approval from the Delhi, Haryana and Rajasthan governments in another three months to begin work within one year. With a design speed of 180 km/h, an operating speed of 160 km/h and an average speed of 105 km/h, the journey between Delhi and Alwar could be completed in 104 minutes, said Mr. Singh. Trains would be available on the corridor every five to 10 minutes, depending the time of the day, he added.
