Uttar Pradesh: 100% Land Acquisition Works for Jewar Airport Completed | Lucknow News

LUCKNOW: As part of the work on Noida International Airport, coming in Jewish, the acquisition of 100% of the land for the project has been completed. The airport will rise on a vast land of 1,334 hectares.
UP Minister for Industries and Infrastructure Development, Nand Gopal Gupta Nandiconfirmed that land acquisition works have been completed and that testing of the airport would begin in March 2024 while it would be ready for use by October 2024.
“The airport’s runway and main building are under construction. In all likelihood, we expect the airport to be ready for use by October 2024,” Nandi said, speaking exclusively to TOI after a review meeting of Yamuna Expressway Industrial Development Authority (YEIDA).
He said that all necessary NoCs and Union Government clearances had been obtained for the project.
Additional Chief Secretary, Industries, Arvind Kumar, said the acquired land was handed over to Zurich Airport International AG, the company developing the airport. “In addition to handing over the land to the developer, necessary changes to the master plan and development plan have been made and approved,” Kumar said.
He said the best part of the land acquisition was that it was done seamlessly on time.
“Land acquisitions have traditionally been a bumpy ride for projects, but in this case it was hassle-free. We have also collected people’s feedback on the rehabilitation and settlement program and people are happy with it,” Kumar said. Prime Minister Narendra Modi laid the foundation stone for the project in November last year.
According to officials, the airport is expected to connect cities like Agra, Mathura, Gautam Budh Nagar, Aligarh and Ghaziabad to the world. The proposed airport will also contribute to the decongestion of Delhi’s IGI airport.
“This will accelerate the industrialization of the region as it will integrate hinterland industries into global value chains. Improved air connectivity can also give a boost to the tourism sector by increasing the flow of traffic to existing tourist sites and creating more opportunities for the development of new tourist centers,” officials said.
