The Delhi-Meerut Rapid Rail Transit System is a high-speed rail network that will be India's first rapid urban network.

The under construction railway line will start from Delhi and connect Meerut in Uttar Pradesh passing through Ghaziabad, Modinagar and Muzzafarnagar.

While the modern trainsets to be deployed by NCRTC for the RRTS corridor are able to achieve a top speed of 180 kmph, the tracks are were not ready to test the trains to their full capability.

Now a video has surfaced on Twitter, showcasing India's first rapid regional rail conducting a high-speed run, passing through an under construction RRTS train station at 150 kmph speed.

This confirms that the RRTS trains, once operational will be the fastest rail in India, surpassing Vande Bharat Express.

The Vande Bharat Express is also designed to achieve a top speed of 180 kmph, but the safety limitations on rail tracks limits the top speed of the Vande Bharat trains at only 130 kmph.

The RRTS, on the other hand, will be an elevated railway line with no public interference and hence can achieve more than 150 kmph speed without much problems.
