New Delhi: As a new year's gift to the residents of Delhi and Haryana, the Delhi government today extended the Delhi Transport Corporation's (DTC) bus services between Najafgarh Terminal in Delhi to AIIMS-Jhajjar (Badsa village) in Haryana. Delhi Transport Minister Kailash Gahlot flagged off the DTC Electric buses on the route from Dhansa Bus Stand during a program.
The service is likely to benefit thousands of commuters travelling daily between Delhi and Haryana. These buses will ply between Najafgarh Terminal and AIIMS Jhajjar via the Daurala Border.
The bus will cover the total length of 26.4KM covering the following stops - Najafgarh Terminal, Jharoda Crossing, Health Center, Najafgarh Delhi Gate, Najafgarh Chhawla Stand, P.S. Najafgarh, Dhansa Stand Najafgarh, Ghumanhera Xing, Prem Nursery, Nanak Piyau, Indra Service Station, Mitrao Desu Office, Mitraon Gaon, Mitraon School, Surehra Xing, Rawta Xing, Jaffarpur Hospital, Samaspur Khalsa, Ujwa School, Ujjwa, Malik Pur Zar Crossing, Ghumanhera Xing, Jhuljhuli Xing, Rawta, Galibpur Xing, Daraula Village, Daurala Border, Maakdola Village, Maakdola Factory, Kaaliyavaas More, Kaaliyavaas Village,Iqbaalpur Village, AIIMS Jhajjar.
Earlier in a meeting with the residents of Haryana's Badsa village near Najafgarh on 29th Dec 2022, Gahlot received a memorandum with a request to run DTC buses on the said route. Accepting the request, he announced extending the service of DTC buses to AIIMS Jhajjar so that people do not face any inconvenience in going to the hospital. The Delhi Government will continue free travel to women on this new route also.
It is worth mentioning that Badsa village of Haryana is located adjoining Najafgarh constituency in Delhi. Many people from here commute to Delhi on a daily basis for their jobs and other work. But due to the lack of bus facilities in this entire area towards Haryana, the local people have been facing inconvenience.
Speaking on the occasion, Gahlot said, “Under the leadership of Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, Delhi Government has been committed to providing more convenient, affordable, and safer travel for its citizens. Thousands of people in Delhi and Haryana will be benefited with this new bus service provided by DTC. Moreover, it is an important service connecting people with a hospital. We are starting with 3 buses today and if the demand of the service is high, we will be introducing more buses on this route.”
