'MoU signed with centre to start regional air services'

Raipur: Chief Minister Raman Singh on Tuesday informed Chhattisgarh Assembly that the House had earlier passed a private resolution for enabling air connectivity for remote pockets of Jashpur, Ambikapur, Raigarh, Jagdalpur and Korba regions.

In a written reply to member R K Rai, the Chief Minister informed that the State Government had floated tenders in 2009 and again in 2014 for air service operators to invite bids for starting air services within the State but the services could not be started due to technical reasons.

He informed that as per the Regional Connectivity Scheme of the Central Government, the State has signed a MoU with the Central Government to start regular and low fare air services in selected regions of Jashpur, Ambikapur, Raigarh, Jagdalpur and Korba.
