The central government is planning to develop two new rapid rail transit corridors -- Delhi-Rohtak-Hisar and Delhi-Baraut via Shahdara, union Urban Development Minister Kamal Nath said Thursday.

Earlier, the government had announced to develop the rapid rail transit corridors on Delhi-Alwar, Delhi-Meerut and Delhi-Panipat routes.

"Two rail corridors -- Delhi-Rohtak up to Hisar and Delhi-Shahdara-Baraut -- have been approved," Nath told reporters here.

The minister had a meeting with Delhi Lt.Governor Tejendra Khanna, Haryana Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda and Uttar Pradesh minister Abhishek Mishra.

"Reports are being prepared and we believe to take these lines forward in two years," the urban development minister said.
