Shivdaspura greenfield airport land decision soon

Jaipur: A decision on reserved land for the greenfield airport in Shivdaspaura is expected to taken soon by the state government.
This would provide relief to farmers near Shivdaspura whose plots have been kept reserved for the past 16 years to build the airport.
A senior source at the Urban Development and Housing (UDH) said the proposal would be tabled in the empowered committee meeting scheduled next month. The meeting will be chaired by the UDH minister Shanti Dhariwal. “The proposal has been prepared for discussion and will be tabled in the meeting, likely to be scheduled in second week of next month,” the source said. In 2004, the Jaipur Development Authority (JDA) proposed to acquire land for the airport. A year later, the draft proposal was forwarded to the UDH. Following the announcement, JDA had imposed a ban on land conversion and issuing of lease deeds in Shivdaspura.
In 2017, the state government gave a nod to the JDA to acquire 2,094 hectares in 20 villages for the airport. However, as acquiring land requires capital of Rs 4,000 crore, the JDA expressed it helplessness and eyed at Centre’s assistance. A senior official source said, “The chief secretary wrote to civil aviation minister for assistance. The Centre directed to carried out a feasibility report.”
