Centre to allot Rs 400 Crore for developing airports in UP
The Centre government has released an official statement that it will provide an assistance of 400 crore rupees for developing airports at Agra, Allahabad, Kanpur and Bareilly in Uttar Pradesh. In this regards, Dr. Mahesh Sharma Minister of State for Civil Aviation held a review meeting with Civil Aviation Secretary RN Choubey where other senior officials were also present. Apart from these 4 cities in UP, the Centre will also study the feasibility of developing no-frills airports in Meerut, Faizabad, and Moradabad. While to develop an airport at Kushinagar the state government has already provided 200 crore rupees which will be complete within a year.
The Centre has also set up a committee comprising two officials each from union civil aviation ministry and state government of UP. This committee will prepare a feasibility report to develop airports in Meerut, Faizabad and Moradabad as well. An officer connected with the project said that land acquisition will soon be initiated in the concerned cities. Dr. Mahesh Sharma also informed that the case of constructing the airport in Jewar had been sent to the Ministry of Defence for their NOC.
