The Chakan International Airport : Getting started in Pune with sanctioned Rs200 crore getting sanctioned

Mumbai: The Chakan International Airport in Pune district has taken that baby step towards take-off. The Union ministry of civil aviation has sanctioned Rs200 crore for the airport, which will now come up on a 700-hectare site adjacent to the one earlier proposed.
An 18-km-long metro rail line has also been proposed to link the airport to an international exhibition centre at Moshi, said Pune divisional commissioner Dilip Band at a press conference on Thursday at the Pimpri-Chinchwad New Township Development Authority (PCNTDA) office in Nigdi.
The cost of building the metro will be borne by the PCNTDA and the Airports Authority of India. PCNTDA will put out a special purpose vehicle for this purpose.
“The plan to build the airport at the old site was scrapped due to farmers’ opposition. But, at the new site, there is no such big hurdle, as only 80 families will have to be rehabilitated. This issue will soon be sorted out. The government will offer a better deal to these project-affected persons (PAPs) because the project is extremely important for Pune city,” explained Band.
