New Delhi: Delhi International Airport (DIAL), the capital’s private airport operator, has received the environmental clearance from the ministry of environment and forests (MoEF) for expansion, restructuring and modernisation of Indira Gandhi International Airport.

A statement from DIAL said the impact of the airport development activities on the existing ambient conditions are well within the statutory permissible limits.
