With Governor intervention, Jammu airport may soon get the defence land much needed for expansion

jammuairportIt is likely that the chaos at Jammu airport will end soon, and even wide bodied aircraft which require a longer runway would be able to land in the city of temples as Governor NN Vohra has written to the Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar for early handover of army land adjacent to the existing airport which has been inordinately delayed. The state government has already given 138 kanals and 12 marlas of land to the army in lieu of this land in Sunjwan. The army land is needed by the airport authority to expand the airport to enable larger planes land here, and more traffic can be handled.

The army meanwhile wants the state to compensate for the loss of civil structures in it’s land, and wants that state government should pay for the erection of new structures in Sunjwan.
