Approval has been received for both the phases for the expansion of Kangra Airport. In such a situation, the land acquisition work can start anytime in the vicinity of Kangra airport i.e. Gaggal and surrounding areas.
For the expansion of Kangra Airport, which is important from the point of view of tourism and security, the approval was going on for a long time, but now after getting the green signal and the funds are approved from the center, the process of land acquisition can be started by the district administration.
In the past days, the process of necessary land related work for expansion along with all the formalities including survey of potholes around the airport has been completed by the central agencies.
In such a situation, now the ongoing wait for the expansion of Kangra Airport is going to end soon.
The expansion work of the airport has been divided into two phases, so that it is easy to work. This is the reason why now both the phases have been approved.
Many important works were stuck due to lack of clarity regarding the airport expansion. The work of Pathankot-Mandi four laning was suspended from Banoi Chowk to Matour due to non-clearance of Kangra airport line.
Not only this, some part of the land selected for the IT park was also being affected due to airport expansion.
In such a situation, if the situation becomes clear, then people who have been saved from displacement will also be able to get a new place for the displaced. (hdm)
