This line will be certain that residential areas of Outdated Gurgaon are coated, however the means to generate excessive ridership could also be a priority.

There can solely be readability as soon as the DPR is ready. It is vital that the ultimate route which will get chosen, is one which has the very best ridership viability,” Aggarwal mentioned.
