Paltry funds for proposed Pune airport

Pune: The allocation of just Rs78 crore for the two proposed airports in Pune and Solapur in the state budget has perplexed the Maharashtra Airport Development Company Limited (MADC) authorities.

“We need to wait for more clarity on the proposed new Pune airport project. Practically speaking, the state government has allocated very less funds for it. We don’t have the break-up of the Rs78 crore earmarked for the two airports,” said an MADC official, requesting anonymity.
Deputy chief minister Ajit Pawar in his budget speech said, “New airports will be constructed in Solapur and Pune. An outlay of Rs78 crore is proposed for the year 2020-21,” Pawar said.
