In a recently held conclave in the national capital, Uttar Pradesh CM Yogi Aditynath assured that the International Airport at Jewar would be ready within next three years. On Saturday, the CM participated in the India Idea Conclave 2018 in Delhi where he also announced that the Ground-breaking ceremony for Jewar airport will be performed by year end.
Speaking during the conclave, CM Adityanath said, “By the end of December we will get the PM to perform the shilanyas at the site of the international airport at Jewar and within three years we will be able to provide good service to NCR areas.”
The project is a dream of both Centre and State Government and hence both of them are working hard to make this dream a reality. The Uttar Pradesh government has appointed Yamuna Expressway Industrial Development Authority (YEIDA) as the implementing agency on its behalf for the airport in Jewar.
Recently, the Uttar Pradesh Government has also released the first installment of Rs 250 crore to start the land acquisition process. The order for the same was issued by civil aviation secretary Surya Pal Gangwar on October 20. As per the orders the funds have been released following the issuance of notification under Section 11 of the Land Acquisition Act. So, in accordance with the notification, the Govt has released 10% of the total projected value.
Also, Price Waterhouse Cooper (PwC), the consultant appointed to prepare the techno-feasibility report of Jewar Airport has submitted the concessionaire agreement to the Yamuna Expressway Industrial Development Authority (YEIDA). The authority will now study the agreement and its legalities for a week and then will send the document to the state civil aviation department for the approval from the project monitoring and implementation committee. The above process will take about a month’s time.
The Greenfield International Airport at Jewar will be built in phases. In the first phase, a total of 1,300-hectares of land needed to be acquired. The land will be acquired from six villages— Rohi, Parohi, Banwaribas, Ramner, Dayanatpur, and Ranhera.
