Delhi to Nainital will take 7 hrs by car. The route will be Delhi > Moradabad > Ramnagar > Haldwani > Nainital. The road is by and large good. If any rough stretch comes, you can diverse through Bajpur > Kaladungi.

Try to start early to avoid traffic congestion.

Just one more advice. If within your budget and travelling with family, then do take a Toyota Innova. Else, you'll feel too cramped and uncomfortable in a smaller car with all family members after about 4 - 5 hours of journey. These days you'll also find Altos going all the way from Delhi to Nainital. Please avoid, if possible, unless travelling alone.

Cost of hiring Toyota Innova might be Rs 6000/- approx .

I would definitely not be taking an Alto. I would take Indigo most probably. How much would it cost for about 9 days?

Indigo is not readily available on hire in this route. You may get Tavera @Rs.3000 per day.

If one takes Ramnagar Route from Moradabad and nor Rampur-Rudrapur route, then why one needs to come back to Haldwani?

It takes 8-9 hours from Delhi to reach Nainital. If you are planning to go to Nainital. Plan for at least 5 days so that you can see the places around; and the amazing Jim Corbett National Park. Here are some memories from my visit,
