Karnataka minister orders survey of buildings around Jakkur aerodrome

Bengaluru: Sports and youth affairs minister KC Narayan Gowda on Friday ordered his department to complete the survey of all buildings abutting the Jakkur Aerodrome to check for height violations and NOCs from the government.

After a review, Narayan Gowda was informed there was a delay in completing the survey due to the pandemic. He was furious because of hurdles to reopen the Jakkur flying school.

Department officials were told to conduct a survey of all buildings around the aerodrome to identify those which have violated norms and initiate action against them. The report should be tabled within the next three months.

The directorate general of civil aviation has prescribed a height for constructions around aerodromes which need to be met in view of flight safety when an aircraft takes off or lands.

Gowda and department additional chief secretary Shalini Rajneesh said the survey will be completed by government agencies within the prescribed time and action initiated against officials if it is delayed.

Several residential buildings have been constructed around the aerodrome.

The government is claiming the amount along with18 per cent interest per annum. Gowda said the government plans to open the flying school from August first week.
