Prime Minister Narendra Modi will lay the foundation stone of the Noida international airport project at Jewar along the Yamuna Expressway on November 25, officials aware of the development said on Monday.
Uttar Pradesh chief minister Yogi Adityanath has directed Noida International Airport Limited (NIAL), the nodal agency implementing the ambitious project, to prepare for the event, the officials said.
NIAL’s chief executive officer Arun Vir Singh, Meerut division commissioner Surendra Singh, Gautam Budh Nagar district magistrate Suhas LY and Gautam Budh Nagar police commissioner Alok Singh and other top officials visited the airport site on Monday to finalise the site for the Prime Minister’s event.
“We visited four sites--two in Ranhera village and one each in Rohi and Banwaribas--to finalise where the event could take place. We have started all arrangements,” said Arun Vir Singh, CEO of NIAL. Officials who asked not to be named said Banwaribas has been finalised for the event but senior administration officials could not confirm it.
