Acquisition of 1,185 hectare of land from six villages in Jewar is required for the stage two of the Noida International Airport, Uttar Pradesh Chief Secretary Rajendra Kumar Tiwari was informed on Friday.

The land would be used for building a third runway, maintenance, repair and overhaul facilities and other aviation-related work at the airport site, Tiwari was told by project officials.

The information was shared as Tiwari, who is also the chairman of the Noida International Airport Limited (NIAL), reviewed progress on the greenfield project coming up in Gautam Buddh Nagar district's Jewar, some 80 km off Delhi.

A presentation of the Social Impact Assessment (SIA) report of villages displaced due to land acquisition for the third runway on phase one of the stage two of the Noida airport was made at the chief secretary's office in Lucknow on Friday, according to an official statement.

The recommendations of the SIA study for land acquisition were accepted by the expert group in its meeting held on November 20 this year, according to the official statement.

A total of 1,365 hectare of land is required for the second stage of the airport, of which some land is already in possession of the Yamuna Expressway Industrial Development Authority (YEIDA), a local state government agency, it noted.
