Delayed for more than a decade, Bareilly will soon boast of its own civilian airport. The project will be located near the Indian Air Force´s Trishul airport and land registered under the Airport Authority of India (AAI). While the delay has been due to farmers´ resistance to sell the land, the state government has negotiated and processed Rs 11 crore to the district administration as compensation for the farmers. That said, the project still awaits government´s nod.
