Kerala Cabinet nod for high-rises near airport

The Kerala Cabinet appears to have put the safety of flyers at risk by deciding to issue occupancy certificates to high-rises located on the flight path to the Thiruvananthapuram International Airport.

With the Cabinet giving its nod, three high-rises that had been denied ‘No Objection Certificate’ by the Airports Authority of India, will get occupancy certificates from the Thiruvananthapuram City Corporation on the ground that they were constructed before January 14, 2010, when new norms relating to construction of high-rises within 20 km radius of the airport came into effect.
