Odisha govt approves commercial airport near Dhamra port

Bhubaneswar: Odisha government has accorded in-principle approval for setting up a commercial airport near Dhamra port in Bhadrak district.
The approval was given at a high level meeting presided over by Chief Secretary A P Padhi on Tuesday, an official said.
The Dhamara Port Company Limited (DPCL), run by the Adani Group, had earlier proposed to set up the airport to boost commercial activities near its port.
Accepting the DPCL’s proposal, the state had sought a detail project report (DPR) for establishment of a commercial airport near Dhamara port.
Meanwhile, the Bhadrak district administration has acquired some land for the proposed airport and for setting up a port based industrial park.
