Jewar Airport bhoomi pujan likely on April 15, officials told to resolve land-related issues

Jewar (Greater Noida): The bhoomi pujan ceremony for the upcoming international airport at Jewar in Greater Noida near Delhi is likely to take place on April 15, local MLA Dhirendra Singh said on Monday.

"The bhoomi pujan for the first airstrip is likely to be held on April 15. We are hoping that the first international flight will take off from this airstrip by 2024,” Singh said.

The Jewar MLA has directed officials to resolve all displacement and land acquisition-related issues at the airport site in the next couple of days.

“This is a dream project of Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, and officers have been given an ultimatum to resolve all pending issues to start the construction as soon as possible. He is taking stock of the developments every day,” Dhirendra Singh said.

On Thursday, Dhirendra Singh interacted with residents of Nagla Ganeshi village and assured them of resolving rehabilitation and resettlement-related issues immediately.

Earlier this month, some farmers there had opposed land acquisition alleging discrepancies in land allotment.
