PM lays foundation stone for Navi Mumbai International Airport

Fifteen CCTV cameras and three 50-feet screens have been installed at the venue

Our Prime Minister of country Narendra Modi laid the foundation stone of the long overdue airport project at Navi Mumbai on Sunday.

Modi laid the foundation stone for the first phase of the Rs16,700-crore Navi Mumbai global airport, about 21 years after the idea was first mooted. "Our government brought an aviation policy that is transforming the sector", he said. "This makes quality infrastructure in the aviation sector of prime importance", he said.

Modi said the Navi Mumbai airport is one of the many projects worth over Rs10,00,000 crore, which were stuck and his government has provided funds and it is now progressing.

The Virgin Group on Sunday signed an "intent agreement" with Maharashtra to build a hyper-loop transportation system between Mumbai and Pune, which aims to reduce the travel time between the two mega cities to 20 minutes from the three hours at present.

Most of the property dealers in Navi Mumbai have been selling flats promoting them as very close to the airport and rates would sky rocket once the airport is fully functional.

Presently, there are a total of around 450 aircraft operating in the country, but that will be more than tripled with over 900 new aircraft to be deployed over the next few years in the country, Modi said.

He hailed the fact that there has been a tremendous growth in India's aviation sector.

The prime minister, who also inaugurated and dedicated to the nation the fourth container terminal of the Jawaharlal Nehru Port Trust at Nhava Sheva, said that ports and waterways are key component of infrastructure development.

"Some of these projects were inaugurated by then political leaders... but none of them became a reality", he said, adding that he had tried to quicken the pace of completion of these projects. The government has set a timeline for the first flight to take off from the NMIA by December 2019.

The project requires over 2,268 hectares of land, of which almost 1,160 hectares will be used for aeronautical purposes.
