To tackle bird-hits, AMC to remove illegal buildings

Ahmedabad: To tackle frequent incidents of bird-hits at the Sardar Patel International Airport, the Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation (AMC) has decided to remove all illegal constructions around the airport boundary wall.

The AMC had earlier carried out a survey and marked 198 residences in the area. Standing committee chairman, Amul Bhatt, said the AMC will check documents of these 198 residents who have been staying there for a long time. “If the documents are found to be genuine, they would be rehabilitated, and the remaining will be removed,” he said.

The encroachment is mostly on the land of the Airport Authority of India (AAI) and hence in coordination with the AAI officials, the same would be removed.
