But what is the thing that makes it this special? The Food, especially the paranthas. And not just of one particular place, but it's a well-proven fact that Dhaba food is the real life and energy of us North Indians and Murthal does that the best.

'Rapid Rail' Efficiently Connecting All Parts in And Out of Delhi

The Delhi to Panipat Regional Rapid Transit System (Delhi–Panipat RRTS) is a proposed, 103 km (64 mi) long, semi-high speed rail corridor connecting Delhi, Sonipat and Panipat in the National Capital Region. It is one of the three rapid-rail corridors planned under Phase-1 of the Rapid Rail Transport System of the National Capital Region Transport Corporation (NCRTC). With a maximum speed of 160 km/h and average speed of 120 km/h, commuters using the system will be able to cover the distance between Panipat and Delhi in just 74 minutes. 


Yes, That's It! A mere time span of 74 minutes will take you to Panipat, where usually by road it takes easily 2 hours. Cutting down all the traffic, red light stops and other shenanigans, Delhi Metro has been the biggest boon to the city ever since past 16 years after it first started working in 2002 and has never ever disappointed us. The facility has upgraded so rapidly and efficiently that now it's stretching it ways to connect other states too. Where the Delhi-NCR regions of Noida and Gurgaon were already pretty well connected, it has started reaching out to other places too.
