Gurgaon Rapid Metro’s Rapid Shut Down May Come Monday Onwards… Say What?

City's Truly

September 7, 2019

The country's first privately owned Gurgaon Rapid Metro is facing closure due to financial crisis. The company has been suffering losses for a long time and reached its saturation on Friday, and slated for a shut down Monday onwards!

The rapid metro was constructed by IL&FS Infrastructure in two phases. In the first phase, the company built 5.1 km elevated track, connecting National Highway No 8 at Shankar Chowk to Sikandarpur DMRC station, covering 6 stations.

They expected office-goers from Delhi to the cyber city to inter-change at Sikandarpur & use the rapid metro. But it didn't succeed as majority of offices were providing cabs to their employees, and steep charges (The rapid metro charges Rs 35 for just 2-3 km) didn't help too. Despite all efforts, the ridership didn't increase as per the expectation.

Out of over 200,000 office-goers, the footfall didn't exceed 15,000 a day!
Rapid metro connects some of the most high-end localities. Most residents of DLF City and condominiums, like Aralia and Magnolias, own luxury vehicles with private drivers... and are very unlikely to use the rapid metro.

IL&FS a letter to the Haryana government mentioning that the company will be unable to run the service from September 9 (Monday), and have urged the Haryana government to takeover the metro.
