Bus rapid transport corridor (BRTC) project : CAG report

Government of NCT of Delhi had identified high capacity buss system (HSBS) as the appropriate road-based public transport system for Delhi. High capacity bus systems were to run on a dedicated lane, which was to be carved out of the existing road network in Delhi. These dedicated lanes are referred to as the Bus Rapid Transport Corridor (BRTC). Transport department went ahead with the construction of BRTC ignoring the advice of large number of agencies on design of the project as a result of which the concept got unpopular because of the traffic congestion it brought about.
