International Airport to be Built Near Jevar

New Delhi: The hurdle for Jevar becoming the second airport in the National Capital Region has been cleared. The Central Government has given a green signal to the proposal to build an international airport in the area Javar adjoining Greater Noida in Uttar Pradesh.

This airport will be ready in five to six years. On one hand it will reduce the burden on existing airport at Palam, on the other hand it can prove to be an economic picture-changer of Noida, Greater Noida and the entire western Uttar Pradesh.

Civil Aviation Minister Ashok Gajapati Raju said in a brief press conference on Saturday that the proposal to build a new international airport in Jewelery has got the approval of the Center. All other formalities related to it will be completed soon. He said that the Yamuna Expressway Industrial Development Authority of Greater Noida has identified 3000 acres of land for a world class airport. Therefore, there will not be much delay in starting work on this.

In the first phase, the Central Government will acquire only one thousand acres of land. It is estimated to cost Rs two thousand crore. Minister of State for Civil Aviation Jayant Sinha said that the capacity of the airport will be three to five crore passengers annually. Accordingly, it will be included in the country's largest international airports from the beginning.

According to Sinha, the burden of the passengers is already growing at the existing airport of Delhi. Now it is a burden of seven million passengers, which will increase to 10-11 million in a few years. But,  this will not be an ideal situation. In this sense a new airport was needed. With this, Delhi will join the few of the world's few cities, where there will be two international airports simultaneously.

The Government's intent is to connect it with Mathura, Agra, Bulandshahr and Meerut in the coming days. Existing Noida and proposed Greater Noida Metro Line will also be linked to it. However, to make this airport, the government will first offer GMR to the new international airport in Palam.

If GMR denies it, then only open tender will be issued for it. For many years, GMR continued to protest the Javar airport on the grounds that it would affect its business.
According to the agreement signed by GMR to create a new airport in Palam, it will not make any other airport within 150 km radius.

If made later, approval will be taken first by GMR. Political importance of Jever Airport is not even less. It has been a very important issue in state politics for many years. The BJP had also promised that if he came to power, it would go ahead with the issue of Airport airport by talking to the Center. Now that the state has BJP government, the Center has fulfilled its promise.


Earlier, despite the efforts of SP and BSP governments in the state, the former UPA government did not approve it.
