AAI cites alternative site for greenfield airport in Haryana

For the proposed greenfield airport in Haryana, the Airports Authority of India (AAI) has suggested an alternative site, close to the existing one at Bhaini Bhairon in Rohtak.

Subsequently the State government has filed a fresh application to the Union Civil Aviation Ministry for site clearance after identifying an area of more than 4,000 acres (6 km X 4 km). AAI HAS identified the site in Meham sub division of Rohtak for the proposed airport. The site touches the districts of Hisar and Bhiwani in the state.

Haryana had urged the civil aviation ministry for formal approval of the project after the AAI had okayed the initial site. Even the union ministry of defence (MoD) had accorded site clearance for the project. However, the process will have to be repeated now, causing a probable delay in the implementation of the project.
