Decision soon on fee for Mopa construction

Panaji: The Mopa Airport Development Authority (MADA) will meet on Thursday with chief minister Pramod Sawant in attendance to decide the amount that GMR Goa International Airport Ltd (GGIAL) has to pay as the construction licence fee for the greenfield airport.

The meeting, which has been called off multiple times, will be held after the first meeting of the Public Private Partnership steering committee at the Goa Tourism Development Corporation (GTDC) office.

Mopa airport authority’s board meeting has gained focus after Porvorim MLA Rohan Khaunte pointed out that GMR Goa is yet to pay the construction licence fee though it has started work on the project.

A month ago, civil aviation minister Suresh Shanbhogue had said that the fees are under dispute and MADA would take a decision ‘shortly’ over the fees to be paid by GMR. Khaunte had said that GMR Goa had failed to pay Rs 49.3 crore as the construction licence fees, but the state government said that GGIAL has asked MADA to reduce the fees.
