The Maharashtra Airport Development Company Limited is yet to get nod from the Union Ministry of Environment and Forests to finalise the detailed project report (DPR) for the proposed Purandar airport.
Quoting an official of the Maharashtra Airport Development Company Limited (MADC), a TOI report said, “A detailed survey needs to be conducted before approaching the ministry of environment and forest (MoEF) for clearance.”
“Landowners have been opposing the acquisition of properties, which has delayed the survey. With the state government going ahead with the project, we have to do it,” added the officer.
According to senior MADC officials, they would survey the airport site in coordination with the Pune district administration to collect some intricate details.
