HC seeks report on Sgr Airport

The High Court today directed the Airport Authority of India (AAI) to report to the court on the next date with regard to the up-gradation of the Srinagar Airport.
The Division Bench of Chief Justice Gita Mittal and Justice Puneet Gupta in this connection directed the AAI counsel to ascertain the position with regard to the up-gradation of the Srinagar Airport and file a latest status report before the next date of hearing as also to ensure that all measures as are essential for enabling access to the airports as well as aircrafts and all other facilities are provided at the airports.
AAI has to cause a disability access to the airports of the J&K including Srinagar airport and to make the airports completely accessible to the differently abled. The earlier report filed by the AAI reveals non- compliance of court orders passed with regard to disability access in all the three Airports as no disability access audit has been undertaken as was directed.
Airport Authority of India is under specific directions to comply with the directions passed earlier and has to comply in respect of all the three Airports of Srinagar, Jammu and Leh.
Court on May 14 had directed the Airport Directors of Srinagar, Jammu as well as Leh and the Airport Authority of India to coordinate with Nipun Malhotra (NGO) and cause a disability access audit of the three Airports.
