Jab-Kolkata air connectivity to boost tourism, defence, colliery industries

Maiden aviation service for Kolkata brought a ray of hope to develop defence and mining based industries in the region. New air connectivity between Jabalpur and Kolkata will not only expedite development activities in Ordnance Factories and collieries but it will also provide a major boost to tourism industry. Ordnance Factory Board (OFB) and Coal India Limited (CIL) are headquartered in Kolkata.

Jabalpur is significant for both the Central Government organisations with key defence establishments and major collieries of Northern, South-Eastern and Western Coalfields. It will attract investors and corporate houses towards Jabalpur to explore new business avenues concerned with defence production and mining sector. Ordnance Factory Khamaria (OFK) Senior General Manager A K Agarwal said that air connectivity will definitely prove fruitful in better transportation of senior board officers and increase their visit to Ordnance Factories in Jabalpur to give pace to ongoing development projects.

Northern Coalfields Limited, PRO, Seeraj Kumar Singh informed that the new aviation service to Kolkata has provided another option to collieries officers for frequent tours. He hoped that development activities will be given pace with frequent visits of senior officers from CIL headquarters.
Madhya Pradesh Tourism Development Corporation, Regional Officer, Abid Khan said that Jabalpur and its adjoining districts are one of the favourite.
