Centre approves development of 21 Greenfield airports
Singh said that these 21 airports would be installed in Mopa in Navi Mumbai, Goa, Shirdi and Sindhudurg in Maharashtra, Bijapur, Kalaburagi, Hassan, and Shimoga in Karnataka, Dabra (Gwalior) in Madhya Pradesh, Kushinagar and Jewar (Noida) in Uttar Pradesh, Dholera and Hirasar in Gujarat, Dagadarthi, Karaikal in Puducherry, Bhogapuram and Orvakal (Kurnool) in Andhra Pradesh, Pakyong in Sikkim, Kannur in Kerala, Durgapur in West Bengal and Hollongi (Itanagar) in Arunachal Pradesh.
Notably, eight of these 21 Greenfield airports have already been operationalised, i.e. Shirdi Airport in Maharashtra, Durgapur Airport in West Bengal, Kannur Airport in Kerala, Orvakal (Kurnool) Airport in Andhra Pradesh, Kalaburagi Airport in Karnataka, Pakyong Airport in Sikkim, Sindhudurg Airport in Maharashtra and Kushinagar Airport in Uttar Pradesh.
Regarding the setback in construction, Singh noted that the timeline for the development of airports depends upon several factors like land acquisition, mandatory approvals, removal of barriers, financial closure by the respective airport developers. The responsibility for the execution of airport projects, including funding of the projects remains with the concerned airport developer, comprising the respective State Government (in case the State Government is the project proponent).
