Real estate boom threat for Air Force Station Yelahanka

Bengaluru: Mushrooming growth of real estate in Bengaluru is the newest problem posing a threat to flying operations of Air Force Station (AFS), Yelahanka, said Group Captain Amit Pushkar, COO, AFS Yelahanka, here on Wednesday.

He said though every new construction in the vicinity of AFS has “to obtain a No Objection Certificate (NOC) and multiple permissions from various agencies like the Ministry of Defence (MoD), Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) and others, we are detecting violations”.

During a presentation, Pushkar highlighted 50-metre-high cranes at construction sites near AFC Yelahanka.

Every construction within a radius of 20 km from the Air Force station has to obtain an NOC, added Wing Commander J.P. Sebharwal.
