Recently, the Uttar Pradesh state Government confirmed that the construction of the Noida International Airport at Jewar will be carried out under the public-private-partnership [PPP] model.

An order was issued by the Civil Aviation Department of the Uttar Pradesh government after the sanction of this proposal. Last week a cabinet meeting was held in which the decision to offer the acquired land on a 90-year lease to the Noida International Airport Limited (NAIL) was taken and the authority is also responsible to take a call in regard with the selection of developers.

The irrigation department will oversee the process and facilitate the shifting procedure of six villages that includes Bajauta Rajawaha, Rajwaha, Dayanatpur Rajawah, Kishrepur Alpika and Pathvaya Nala. All these villages are being shifted to commence the work of Jewar airport.

The State Government has already sanctioned both, financial as well as the administrative clearance of Rs 4,500 crore that is required for the acquisition of 1,239.14 hectares of land at a cost of Rs 2,300 per square metres. The government land falling under the jurisdiction of the proposed airport will be transferred free of cost by the government to the airport.

The State Government also directed the officials to build new primary and secondary schools for the children who are shifting to the new places so that the acquaintance of the land for the proposed airport won’t disruption their studies.

Anoop Chandra Pandey, the Chief Secretary also directed the officials of the Women and Child Welfare Department to construct a new ‘aanganwadi’ centre. The officials are also directed to convert the barren lands into cultivable land in order to make it usable for the agricultural purpose.

Earlier, the agricultural land was acquired for the proposed Jewar airport and this move is taken in regard with the same.
