Government needs 66 acres more to upgrade Karnal aviation club

Karnal: The requirement of land for expansion of the Haryana Institute of Civil Aviation, Karnal, has changed again and now the club will be developed in 172 acres for which the department requires additional 66 acres.

The government already owns 106 acres and to meet the requirement, it needs additional 66 acres, but farmers have given consent for only 38 acres.

In 2014, the additional land requirement was 18 acres, which was revised to 28 acres, later to 280 acres, and again to 55 acres, but now it has finally agreed on 66 acres.

The Centre had introduced a land acquisition Act, but it is not being followed by the state government in this project. We are in the favour of development and we have agreed to provide our land for the aviation club if the government adheres to the Central land acquisition Act, but the government should clarify how much land it requires and how much it will pay. —Bhavneet Singh Kaliana, Resident of kulvehri

“The aviation club will be upgraded in 172 acres for which we need 66 acres more. A couple of farmers have given conditional consent that their remaining land should also be purchased, which has been accepted,” said Deputy Commissioner Nishant Kumar Yadav. He said the rates were negotiated by the revenue authorities and also justified as the collector rates.
