Ajit Singh writes to UP CM on land for airport at Allahabad

Union Minister of Civil Aviation Ajit Singh has requested Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav to transfer 50 acres of identified land in Allahabad to the Airports Authority of India (AAI) to develop a new Civil Enclave to handle civil airport operations in the city.

In a letter to Mr Yadav, Mr Singh said that, given the lack of space, AAI is not able to upgrade the Civil Enclave of Bamrauli Airport at Allahabad as the airport belongs to Indian Air Force. 
 
He said the AAI had already made a preliminary study of the surroundings of the airport area and discussed the matter with the Indian Air Force. 
 
The site measuring approximately 50 acres has been identified south of the airfield for development of new Civil Enclave. The new Civil Enclave will include new terminal building, apron to park civil schedule flights, link taxi track, car park, and so on.
 
Pointing out that Allahabad is one of the major cities of Uttar Pradesh and also has significant potential to enhance religious tourism, Mr Singh stated in the letter that the development of Bamrauli Airport will go a long way in development of eastern region of the State and also adjoining areas of Madhya Pradesh. 
 
The letter said that in case of any difficulty in acquisition and transfer of identified land, an alternative location having an area of 50 acres may be acquired and handed over to AAI at the earliest, as a number of representations have been received for development of the airport.
