Orissa government urges Airports Authority of India (AAI) to scale down land requirement for Jharsuguda airport

Following report is from http://www.business-standard.com:

The Orissa government has urged the Airports Authority of India (AAI) to scale down its requirement of land for development of a new airport at Jharsuguda, an upcoming industrial hub in the state.

AAI, which has taken up the work of developing Jharsuguda airstrip into a full-fledged airport, had asked for additional 815 acres of land free of cost.

However, sources said, a maximum 734 acres of land is available near the location which includes 418 acres of private land.

“Hence, Airport Authority has been requested to scale down their requirement of land through a reasonable estimate”, said chief minister Naveen Patnaik.

Besides, AAI has been urged to give a firm commitment to complete the airport upgradation work within two years of getting the additional land, he added.

AAI is yet to respond to the state government’s requests.

Earlier, AAI had stated that the commencement and completion of the new airport depended on the availability of land from the state government. AAI would invest about Rs 80crore in the first phase of the project while the investment in the second phase would depend on the traffic of the airport.

Presently, there is only one airport in the state- the Biju Patanaik Airport in Bhubaneswar. In addition to this, there are 16 airstrips and 12 helipads for landing of aircrafts and helicopters. When fully operational, Jharsuguda will be the second full fledged airport in the state after Bhubaneswar.

Sources said, the Jharsuguda airstrip will first be renovated to make it fit for landing of small 15-30 seater ATR aircrafts. In the second phase, it will be upgraded to the status of a full fledged airport.

Similarly, the state government is considering the proposal of AAI for providing additional 23 acres land for construction of parallel taxi track and development of 300 metres basic strip at the Biju Patnaik airport in Bhubaneswar, Patnaik said.

    i had given ds latter hor’ble rdc but val had not come on that meeting see ds latter.

    To
    The Collector, Jharsuguda District,
    JHARSUGUDA.

    Sub :- (Request to discuss on the problems of technically qualified unemployed youths in ensuing R.P.D.A.C. meeting)

    Respected Sir,
    We, the following signatories, who belong the member of “Rising Student Youth Association” beg to request you the following few lines for favour of your kind consideration, which are, as follow:-
    That, though we are technically qualified local youths unfortunately up till now we are unemployed in spite of having different industrial set-ups in and around Jharsuguda district. But a large number of people belonging to outside our district, and outside state have been engaged here at different industrial establishments established by different Companies.
    That, in spite of our innumerable times of approach and request to the concerned authorities of different Companies and industrial establishments, they have turned their deaf ears towards us for which a sense of despondency has been developed within ourselves. Again their refusal to accept our bio-data has redoubled our sense of despondency. Even if, the Allied Group of Companies are also reluctant to accept our bio-data. The Company proper VAL and also Allied Group of Companies have totally failed to develop empathetic attitude towards us. The same problem is also faced by us, when we do apply for job through “On-line”.
    That, taking into consideration of the way of present selection of different employees we had had launched a Strike against “VAL” and its maintenance company “Evonik” on Dt. 06.10 2010 to solve our problem. But, it is a regret that, till date no steps have been taken by the concerned authorities to appease our revolutionary minds.

    That, in due course of our approach to the concerned authorities of Jharsuguda ‘district administration’ specifically we are thankful to the Sub-Collector and ADM, that both have realised our problem and had arranged a meeting on Dt. 22.09.2010 in the conference hall of Sub-Collector with the presence of the authorities of VAL and its Allied Group of Companies with us. After the meeting, we came to know that, our problems will be put forth in the next R.P.D.A.C monthly meeting.
    That, as per the discussion and advice of the district administration, Jharsuguda, we request you to discuss our problems in R.P.D.A.C meeting scheduled to be held on Dt. 05/10/2010.
    With these, we hope, that due consideration will be made for our appeal.
    With due regards.

    Dt. 30/09/2010 Yours Faithfully.
    Jharsuguda
