Growing urban agglomeration in almost all the metropolitan cities of the world has been a cause of many socio-economic and developmental problems surfacing in the respective metropolitan cities. Some of these problems have been in the nature of countryside-metropolitan labor migration, traffic congestion, tremendous pressure on resources leading to rapid price rise in essential services (water, domestic gas, electricity and transport), realty sector and other commodities, accentuating divide between the haves and have-nots, imbalanced regional growth and the like. This paper aims to study how effective planning of a transportation infrastructure can create favorable situation to solve all the above problems. The scenario was observed to be similar in different parts of the globe whether it was New York City, USA ; Taiwan, Hong Kong, China; Manchester, UK; New Delhi, India; Tokyo, Japan. In many of these metropolitan cities, the development of an efficient Mass Rapid Transport System (MRTS) has been one of the ways by which the municipal corporation or the city’s governing body has tried to address the problems mentioned above and has been successful to quite an extent. This paper concludes that if in Phase I and II expansion of Delhi Metro Rail network from NCT to NCR region would have been taken then significant reduction in congestion, growing prices, urban agglomeration would have taken place and the development of region peripheral to the NCT would also be possible
