Work on Jewar airport picks pace, PM Modi, CM Adityanath to perform bhoomi pujan in August

Noida: With Covid-19 cases on the decline and unlocking picking pace, a bhoomi pujan for the proposed fourth largest airport in the world at Jewar of Greater Noida will take place in August with Prime Minister Narendra Modi and UP Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath as chief guests.

With Uttar Pradesh assembly elections slated early next year, the state government is mulling to launch the "much-awaited" Jewar airport project as soon as possible.

"Foundation stone laying of the proposed fourth largest airport in the world will be done in August. Search for a good location for this event is on. Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath and Prime Minister Narendra Modi will be doing the bhoomi pujan ceremony," said Jewar MLA Dhirendra Singh.

Relocating those who will be displaced by the construction of Jewar airport has started and construction of their houses has begun at the allocated land. Compensation for their lands has also been paid to a great extent.

"As the unlock process begins, we have sped up the process of the airport construction. All relocations and compensation are being closely monitored," said Arunveer Singh, CEO of Yamuna Expressway Industrial Development Authority (YEIDA).

The UP government has allocated 5,845 hectares of land for the upcoming international airport project and once constructed, it will be the fourth largest airport in the world.
