The Haryana government on Tuesday has provided Z-plus security to Dera Sacha Sauda chief Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh following reports of death threats from pro-Khalistan activists.

Soon you can travel from Delhi to Hisar in just 2.5 hours with this superfast train, here's all you need to know

There is good news for those who regularly travel between Delhi and Hisar (Haryana) via train. Considering the value of time, the Indian Railways has decided to run a super-fast train between these two cities.

Preparations for the new train are going on. The Ministry of Railways also said that it will install the requisite elevated railway line along the route. According to Haryana Urban Local Bodies Minister Dr Kamal Gupta, the government is planning the construction of a new superfast train route between Delhi and Hisar. The plan will improve the connection between the Delhi and Hisar airports.

Currently, the journey between Delhi and Hisar is completed within four hours. But after the new line is elevated, the distance of 180 km will be completed in just 2.5 hours.

The major motivation for establishing a new rail route is that if the Delhi Indira Gandhi International Airport experiences more air traffic, part of it might be redirected to Hisar Airport. Hisar airport can thereafter be developed as an aviation hub.

According to Kamal Gupta, Chief Minister Manohar Lal has discussed the plans with Railway Minister Ashwini Vaishnav, and it is expected that 10 new railway stations and a road would be created beneath Rohtak’s elevated railway line. The land acquisition procedure in the Prithla and Palwal areas will start soon. The economic corridor will be linked via a connection.

The state administration is taking significant initiatives to strengthen the state’s railway and transportation infrastructure, Kamal Gupta said.
