Civil Enclave to come up near Ambala Air Force Station

Ambala: With the Haryana Government likely to get possession of a 20-acre defence land adjacent to the Air Force Station in Ambala Cantonment next week, the wait for a civil enclave, which has been hanging fire since 2018, is expected to end soon.

The government today also accorded administrative approval to release over Rs 133 crore to the Defence Estate Officer, Ambala, for the purchase of the defence land from the Ministry of Defence for the establishment of the civil enclave.

In December 2018, the civil airport project was approved under the Udan 3.0 scheme by the Centre.

In 2019, routes of Srinagar and Lucknow were awarded to an airlines by the Ministry of Civil Aviation and the flights were expected to start from July 15, 2020, but it did not happen.

Later, land next to the Air Force Station was identified for the terminal, and in 2021, Rs 40 crore was approved by the Union Ministry of Civil Aviation for the construction of a domestic terminal.

In June, the Ministry of Defence had given approval for the transfer of land, for which Rs 133 crore were sought from the Haryana Government. The runway of the Air Force will be used for the project.
