The Uttar Pradesh government finally kicked off the process of construction of the Jewar airport by releasing its first instalment of Rs 250 crore to begin the land acquisition process for the ambitious project. The greenfield project for establishing the second international airport in the NCR region seeks to lessen air traffic load on the Indira Gandhi International Airport in New Delhi. The civil aviation secretary Surya Pal Gangwar issued a government order on October 20, stating that the funds were released following the issuance of the land acquisition notification. According to the notification, the Yogi Adityanath government released 10% of the total land acquisition cost.

 

The greenfield airport proposed to be built at an estimated cost of Rs 15,000 crore to Rs 20,000 crore, will require a total of 5,000 hectares of land. However, 1,334 hectares of land is required to build the first phase of the airport. Brajesh Narain Singh, District Magistrate (DM) of the Gautam Budh district, said that near about 1,239 hectares of land, belonging to the farmers, will be acquired from six villages including Rohi, Dayanatpur, Parohi, Kishorepur, Ranhera and Banwari Baans along the Yamuna Expressway. The farmers owning the land in the region would be provided with their share of compensation. The remaining 95 hectares required for the first phase of the project already belonged to the government.
