UP allocates INR 2,000 cr for six runways at Jewar airport

For the expansion of the Noida International Greenfield Airport, the Uttar Pradesh government in its 2021-22 budget has made a provision of INR 2,000 crore, along with the announcement of establishing an ‘electronic city’ near the airport.

The government has allocated INR 2,000 crore to increase the number of airstrips at the airport from two to six.

While the work on the first phase of the airport is underway, the airport to be built at an estimated cost of around INR 30,000 crore, will be the largest airport in the country on completion.

The scheduled deadline for the completion of the first phase of the airport is 2023.

The entire construction will take place in four phases and Switzerland’s Zurich Airport International AG has won the contract to build the proposed airport in Noida, on the outskirts of Delhi.

While the airport is expected to come up on about 5,000 hectares of land, so far the government has acquired 1,334 hectares of land for which the two runways will be built in the initial phase. An additional 50 hectares of land will be acquired for the rehabilitation of those displaced by the project. The remaining land would be acquired in a phased manner.

The airport project in its present form has been referred to as a “greenfield project”, but the idea was first proposed in 2001 when Rajnath Singh was the Chief Minister.
