New Chakan International Airport - Appointment of Project Consultant - depends on who will be the next Chief Minister & how much time he takes!

Last Chief Minister:

On February 18, the Ashok Chavan-led state cabinet had given its administrative sanction to the international airport project, which is to be built on a public-private partnership (PPP) basis.

The state cabinet then resolved for naming the project as New Chakan airport

Approved the appointment of Maharashtra Airport Development Company (MADC) as a special planning authority (SPA) for land acquisition and development of the airport.

A seed money of Rs 200 crore was also cleared for the project.

The civil aviation unit of the state department for general administration has so far released Rs 75 crore of the seed money to the MADC and the latter had called tenders for appointment of a project consultant.

Six companies have filed their bids for the consultancy work that involves planning, designing, supervision and execution of the airport project. These include independent firms as well as consortia or joint ventures.

However, considering that the results of the assembly elections are on October 22 and will be followed by the government formation process, it will take some time for the MADC board of directors, which is headed by the chief minister (CM), to put its final seal of approval on the consultant recommended by the management.

The SPA has identified 3,300 hectares of land covering seven villages in Rajgurunagar for the airport project.

  2. 1) Because when we take a decision to by a home in Pune real estate market or when we expect real estate investment to appreciate, what do we consider? Development opportunities. For Chakan, Airport was the "driver of the growth".

  3. Refr: For Chakan, Airport was the "driver of the growth".

    So you mean the RE prices in Chakan and elsewhere will start hitting the roof?

    Alos, why RE prices near Airports increase?

    After all, nobody would be travelling by Air very frequently just because Airport is near his/her house.

    Plus it would be so noisy near the Airport ...
