Local MLA Dhirendra Singh said on September 10, 2018, that in total, 307 farmers accepted for the acquisition of their land, in a single day for an international airport at Gautam Buddh Nagar district’s Jewar.
The officials are constantly visiting the area in UP where land has to be acquired for the project. The estimated cost of the project is to be between Rs 15,000 and Rs 20,000 crores.
Singh said, “Consent has been given for almost 93 per cent of the land required for the phase-I development of the proposed airport.”
He also stated there would be around 3,512 villagers if landless people were also included in this for the project.
Singh also said that, now, with the agreement of 93 per cent villagers, it is almost certain that work for the airport would begin soon, after following due procedures.
Meeting was held between Dhirendra Singh and chief minister Yogi Adityanath at the Uttar Pradesh Sadan in New Delhi on September 9, 2018, where he had briefed him about the resettlement and rehabilitation policy for the villagers who would be impacted by the mega project.
The land need for the project is around 5,000 hectares for the project.
