Following the appointment of RITES, a Government of India Enterprise for conducting an Obstacle Limitation Survey (OLS) for the proposed international airport at Jewar, Uttar Pradesh Director, Civil Aviation Devendra Swaroop met Arunvir Singh, Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Yamuna Expressway Industrial Development Authority (YEIDA) on Tuesday to take the project further. A team of officials from RITES also met Singh to chart out the road map for conducting an Obstacle Limitation Survey (OLS) for the project.

The Union ministry of civil aviation in May 2016 had asked the UP government to conduct a fresh feasibility study and OLS survey on the project as a similar assessment was conducted by UP civil aviation department director for the airport project in 2010. On April 26, 2017, YEIDA had formally appointed RITES for the survey.
