HC pulls up Centre on Chandigarh airport compliance

Chandigarh: The Punjab and Haryana High Court on Thursday came down heavily on the Centre for not making the Chandigarh international airport CAT III-compliant for landing during poor visibility.
A division bench of the high court warned the Centre of prosecution of its officials for filing a false affidavit. The Bench observed that the land acquired should be handed back to farmers.
The Centre thought high courts were its colonies, the Bench observed.
The Centre said tenders would be floated for re-carpeting of the runway in September; and the runway would be made CAT-III compliant after re-carpeting.
