Domestic airport at Dhalbhumgarh receives a shot in the arm

Jamshedpur: The plan for domestic airport of international standards at Dhalbhumgarh, around 70 km from city received a shot in the arm after Union Defence Ministry has given no-objection clearance to the Union Civil Aviation Ministry for the proposed domestic airport at Dhalbhumgarh in Ghatshila sub-division.

Jamshedpur BJP MP Bidyut Baran Mahto, on Wednesday informed that he spoke to Union Minister of State for Civil Aviation, Jayant Sinha yesterday and he informed that Union Defence Minister, Nirmala Sitharaman said that the no objection letter has already been sent to the Ministry.

The defence coordination committee had in 2017 claimed to nearly 290 acres of land out of over 450 acres of land earmarked for Dhalbhumgarh airport, which they claimed to have acquired in 1942-44. However, based on the 1964 land survey of erstwhile Bihar government, it belonged to government.
