Hopes rise for international cargo from Madurai airport

Madurai: Madurai airport may soon get the long-awaited international cargo facility, authorities have indicated. This after the traders' body decided to give an undertaking that they did not need the cold storage facility for cargo operations.
There has been a delay on the part of customs department in giving custodianship for the facility despite the finance ministry notification way back in May 2013. Apparently, customs were waiting for the cold storage facility to be set up.
Tamil Nadu Chamber of Commerce and Industries (TNCCI) senior president S Rethinavelu said they had recently taken up the delay in setting up the facility with the Joint commissioner of customs who in turn cited the absence of cold storage facility.
"We told him that we will give in writing that we do not need the facility initially. In that case, he promised us to take up the custodianship. We are submitting the letter tomorrow," he said.
