Jewar airport construction to start in December 2018

New Delhi: The construction work on Jewar airport in Greater Noida will commence in December next year - earlier than the Uttar Pradesh government's scheduled plan and well ahead of 2019 Lok Sabha elections.
In line with the advanced target, Yamuna Expressway Industrial Development Authority (YEIDA) on Friday selected professional services firm EY (formerly Ernst & Young) to prepare a techno-economic feasibility report (TEFR) for the proposed airport.
"EY has been awarded the mandate to conduct TEFR for the project and the report is to be submitted by April 2018," Prabhat Kumar, chairman of YEIDA, told ET. "We are targeting to call for bids in July and lay the foundation stone of the project in December," he said.
While KPMG came second in the bids for TEFR for the airport called by YEIDA, Deloitte came third. "EY will also help us get the environmental clearance for the project," Kumar said.
