Fadnavis who had first announced the airport will be completed by 2019 , announced that the airport development is on track and will be operative by mid next year. The comment comes at a time when 10% of the villagers displaced by the project are yet to vacate the area.
The CM said the NMIA would contribute one percent to the country’s GDP and is aimed at boosting Indian Aviation. GVK which runs Mumbai airport was awarded letter of consent in October 2017 after which pre development work had begun. However this work which includes the leveling of land is yet to be completed.
