Citizens living in different regions of western UP and few regions of Rajasthan are travelling to Delhi on a trip of two hours when they decide to take air travel. The Jewar airport will be an excellent help for these individuals. It will not just address aviation requirements of Delhi, but of other cities including Meerut, Mathura, Agra, and Bulandshahr also.

The ministry of Union civil aviation expects the airport to provide an economic potential and bolster tourism to this region.

Bonus for landowners

The GNDA (Greater Noida District Administration) will buy land directly from the farmers of thirty-nine villages in this area for fast-tracking the work. It means that land acquisition Act of 2013 is not invoked in this land buying process. Though, authorities will require engaging in the hard bargaining in terms of pricing. The GNDA is providing farmers about Rs 1,895 per square foot, but the farmers are demanding about Rs 5,000 psf.

The new report shows that villagers are asking 4 times the circle amount for selling their land when the administration is providing just 2 times the circle amount for acquiring. The landowners are threatened to resort to the Bhatta-Parsaul style objection if the demands of landowners are not satisfied.

The land rates in an area significantly increased after the Jewar airport is declared. While a bigha of land was actually sold for about Rs 4-5 lakh in before, the cost has currently touched about Rs 20-25 lakh per bigha. A bigha of the land actually measures about 843 square meters.
