India's MoD releases land to help develop three airports in Assam news
24 May 2008

New Delhi: With India's ministry of defence agreeing to release land for the development of three airports in Assam, the decks have been cleared for the development of the Jorhat, Lilabari and Mohanbari airfields.

The decision of the ministry was conveyed to officials of the Airport Authority of India and the Assam government at a meeting attended by the minister of state for defence, Palam Raju, and the Union minister of state for chemicals and fertilisers, Bijoy Krishna Handique.

While the MoD has agreed to release two acres of land for development of the Jorhat airport, it did not specify the quantum of land to be released for extension of the airfields at Mohanbari and Lilabari, other than saying that land will be released in exchange for other land with the State government.

The additional land is to be used for extension of runways to facilitate operation of bigger aircraft.
