In order to start the Land acquisition process for Jewar Airport, officials from the Yamuna Expressway Industrial Development Authority (YEIDA) will soon hold meetings with various villagers seeking consent for the grant of land. The meeting will start from July 16 onwards and will go on for a week.

To have a smoother coordination, YEIDA has appointed a committee which will meet the villagers and note down consent and objections for the proposed Greenfield Noida International airport. After the completion of meeting, officials will submit detailed report to the UP Government.

Providing more details about the whole process, YEIDA CEO Arun Vir Singh said, “The expert committee would hold separate meetings in each village. They will start with Ramner on July 16 and will meet villagers and inform them about various development projects in detail. Once they will get villagers consent, they will then prepare the report and send it to state Government for approval.”

A total of 5000 hectare land has been identified for the development of proposed Jewar Airport. Out of this, around 1200 hectares will be acquired for the first phase of development. For land acquisition eight villages has been identified which include Ramner (6.01 H), Banwariwas (6.67 Ha), Mukeempur Shivara (58.79 Ha), Ranehra (100.59 Ha), Parohi (134.19 Ha), Kishorpur (150.53 Ha), Dayanatpur (389.64 Ha), and Rohi (481.53 Ha). The acquisition process is said to be completed in four phases.

The civil aviation ministry is expecting to start the Jewar airport operation in 2022-23. As per the TeFR report prepared by PwC, it is predicted that once operational, the airport will cater 60 lakh passengers annually which will gradually help in easing passenger traffic at Delhi’s IGI airport.
