Civil aviation director asks AAI to inspect Bareilly airport site

Bareilly: To expedite the construction of the proposed Nath Nagari airport, near the Indian Air Force’s Trishul airbase in Bareilly, director of civil aviation in UP government, Devendra Swaroop, has asked the chairman of Airport Authority of India (AAI) Guru Prasad Mohapatra to send a team to inspect the civil enclave perimeter as some stretches of the boundary are zigzag shaped. Swaroop insisted Mohapatra to send a senior official of AAI, along with the team, as any decision on the zigzag shaped boundary could be taken on the spot. According to the district administration, work at the proposed civil enclave site has slowed down as AAI is yet to inspect the boundary.

In his letter to Mohapatra, Swaroop said, “Bareilly district magistrate told us that land, according to the master plan, for a civil enclave has been acquired but at some stretches, the boundary wall is zigzag shaped. Site inspection is necessary for this. Hence, it is advised that the executive director of AAI visit the site and resolve the matter.”
The director of civil aviation has asked the AAI chairman to inform him about the proposed visit of AAI officials as he could also reach the place to give submission on behalf of the state government.
