New Delhi, May 8 (IANS) The central government on Tuesday accorded its 'in-principle' approval to the UP state government for setting up of the second international airport in the national capital region (NCR) at Jewar, Greater Noida.
Besides, an in-principle site clearance to a greenfield international airport at Purander, Pune was also accorded.
"Accepting the recommendations made by the steering committee on greenfield airports,
(Minister for Civil Aviation) Suresh Prabhu today accorded site clearance approval to the Greenfield International Airport at Purander, Pune," the Ministry of Civil Aviation said in a statement.
"The Minister also accorded 'in-principle' approval to the government of Uttar Pradesh for setting up of Noida International Greenfield Airport at the North of Jewar Village, Utta Pradesh."
Earlier, the ministry had granted "site clearance" to the Noida International Greenfield Airport on July 6, 2017. The UP government had then appointed Yamuna Expressway Industrial Development Authority (YEIDA) as the implementing agency on its behalf in October 2017.
YEIDA has obtained the "No Objection Certificate" (NOC) from the Ministry of Defence on January 11, 2018.
"With the Minister's approval today the YEIDA has got in-principle approval for setting up of Noida International Greenfield Airport at North of Jewar village, Uttar Pradesh," the statement said.
On the greenfield airport at Purander, Pune, the statement said: "One of the conditions of site clearance approval to Pune Greenfield Airport is that the Mahashtra Airport Development Company Ltd - MADC, the agency executing the project, will try not to close the existing Pune airport."
"It will accordingly take up the matter with Ministry of Defence and will try to make both the airports available for civil use. With the grant of site clearance approval, the MADC, may proceed with preparation of Techno Economic Feasibility Report and Detailed Project Report."
