Rs 2,890 cr budget for Jewar airport phase 2
The Noida administration has prepared a Rs 2,890 crore budget to acquire land from seven villages for the second phase of the Noida International Airport (NIAL).
In a proposal to the state government, the district administration has said it will need to acquire 1,365 hectares for the expansion of the airport, of which 1,185 hectares is private land.
The seven villages where land would be acquired are Mundhera, Nangla Shahpur, Berampur, Karauli Bangar, Kureb, Dayanatpur and Ranhera.
The Noida administration has also decided to offer incentives to the families who need to be rehabilitated because of the project. Special camps will be set up at the Jewar tehsil, where officials will approve the building plans and layouts of the houses of the displaced families.

Stamp duty charges for the land transaction will also be paid by the civil aviation department of the Uttar Pradesh government. The township is being developed with a budget of Rs 320 crore.
Officials told the media that the last instalment to enable the rehabilitation process would be transferred at the earliest for people to start construction of their houses.
An amount of Rs 5.5 lakh is being offered to each displaced family to build a house, apart from Rs 36,000 as transportation charges under the rehabilitation and resettlement funds. More than 3,500 families have to be displaced from the six villages.
