Noida airport foundation event likely next month

Greater Noida: The foundation stone laying ceremony of the Noida International Airport project is likely to take place during Navratri next month.

Arun Vir Singh, the CEO of Noida International Airport Limited — the special purpose vehicle of the UP government — said more than 90% of the families affected by the project had started constructing their houses in the rehabilitation township of Jewar Bangar. “Of the 3,003 plots that have been allocated to villagers in Jewar Bangar, construction work has started on about 2,730 of them. Some families have already started staying in their new homes,” he added.

The stone laying ceremony was expected to take place in the last week of August. But, sources said, the death of former BJP chief minister Kalyan Singh and the Taliban takeover of Afghanistan kept the Prime Minister’s office and the state government busy.

As pitru paksha will go on till October 6, no big ticket event is likely to be launched during this period. “The concessionaire of the airport project has already started work on the ground. The foundation or the stone laying ceremony has to be decided by the state government. We are focused on getting the commercial operations started within the next three years and improving the accessibility and connectivity of the Yamuna Expressway region with other parts of NCR,” Singh said.
