So what is the difference between RRTS, Metro and Rail?
Metro: Intra-city commute, air conditioned rakes. Also connects satellite cities (like Delhi-Noida, Kolkata-Howrah).

RRTS: Regional transit system for Inter-city commute. Like intercity locals but with AC rakes and high frequency.

Suburban Rail: A substandard service operated by IR. Ride the local trains only if you have no option/money or want to travel in subhuman conditions.

No I'm talking about the logistics specifically type of track, power system, bogie type and capacity.

Track: Metro systems use a mix of broad and standard gauges. RRTS in NCR uses standard gauge. Important thing is that metros and RRTS trains will always have right of way.

Capacity: Metro rakes are smaller than normal IR rakes (independent of track gauge). Locals are 3.6m wide while metros can be 2.8m to 3.2m wide. Locals are 12 cars long while metros are 6-8 cars long. RRTS rake is 6 cars long.

Signalling: Metro systems use CBTC or TPWS. RRTS will use ETCS level 2.

Power system: Metro systems use 750 V DC, third rail or 25 kV, 50Hz OHE. RRTS uses 25 kV, 50 Hz OHE like main line.

and then you have pajeets like this who will gladly ignore 99.999999% of Indian streets and focus on the 10 roads in the entire country that doesnt resemble a 4th world slum and claim everything is good. Ruling India must be the easiest job in the world. People have literally 0 expectations and you dont need to deliver anything either.

Da duck mate we cannot make our cities look like that Zooropeans ones we have way more population density than them.
The results will always look like shit.

Wrong. It is the mentality that we need to change. If Indonesia, Singapore and Japan can make clean cities despite having higher population density than most Indian cities, then the problem lies within us, the Indian people.

Suburban rail should be converted into RRTS and tracks expanded to make way for more capacity. Also expand the Mumbai Metro. This will alleviate subhuman conditions and get rid of super dense crush loading during peak hours which causes the most complaints.

That picture looks decent . Road condition could have been more smooth but it's clean mostly.

Completely agree with you. Look at the road. No drainage channels on both the sides. Despite being a wide road, no lane marking. Thank god it's a concrete road, otherwise it would have been filled with potholes. Even concrete roads have potholes. Why? Reason is quality of concrete. There is no quality control during making of concrete. Contractors use same old rotating drums for mixing concrete. Can't even use RMC trucks for pouring concrete. And then there is electric pole which will not be shifted and will take up 20-30% space of a lane.
