Noida airport


The Gautam Buddh Nagar administration has sent a proposal to the Uttar Pradesh government for the acquisition of land for the second phase of Noida International Airport in Jewar, officials said on Monday.

The second phase of Greenfield Airport is planned in an area of ​​1,365 hectares, of which about 1,185 hectares are owned by individuals, including farmers, from six villages, the officials said.

The land is acquired in accordance with the Right to Fair Compensation and Transparency in Land Acquisition, Rehabilitation and Resettlement Act 2013.

The land acquisition proposal for the second phase of Noida International Airport has been sent by the district administration to the government.

“The government may soon issue a notice under section 11 and then under section 15 of the act for further proceedings,” Additional District Magistrate (Land Acquisition) Balram Singh told PTI.

Article 11 of the law details the process of publication of the preliminary notification of acquisition after the consent of at least 70% of the landowners, while article 15 provides for the possibility of raising objections, if necessary, related to land acquisition.

Land is to be acquired in the six villages of Ranhera, Kureb, Dayanatpur, Karauli Bangar, Mundrah and Birampur in Jewar, about 75 km from Delhi, according to an official.

Yamuna International Airport Private Limited (YIAPL), a subsidiary of Swiss company Zurich International Airport AG which is developing Noida International Airport, recently said that the first phase of the mega aviation project is on schedule.

The first phase, for which a similar amount of land has been acquired, is expected to be completed by September 2024.

“We are on schedule to deliver the project in accordance with the terms and conditions of the concession contract,” said Christoph Schnellmann, managing director of YIAPL, during a press conference in Greater Noida on November 10.
