'Rohini heleport kept out of Pawan Hans disinvestment process'

New Delhi: The country's first integrated heliport set up by state-run Pawan Hans at an investment of around Rs 100 crore, has been kept out of the Miniratna PSU's disinvestment process, according to a senior official of the civil aviation ministry.

As part of the plan, the heliport at Rohini in North Delhi, which became functional early this year, will remain under the administrative control of the ministry while its operations and management will be handled by the Airports Authority of India (AAI), the official said.

Pawan Hans Ltd (PHL) is a 51:49 joint venture between the civil aviation ministry and oil behemoth ONGC.

The profit-making aviation entity is currently under the sale process as the government has proposed to offload its entire 51 per cent holding in the company to private entities.

"The heliport at Rohini has been hived off from the disinvestment process of Pawan Hans," the official told PTI on condition of anonymity.
