Airport project inches ahead

With the Central Government clearing a revised draft agreement with an explicit commitment on shutting down the existing HAL airport one hurdle is out of the way. Still, a few more feet of red tape is yet to be cut. From the Possession certificate of the land to a license from the Directorate General of Civil Aviation there is quite a distance to cover. Latest reports suggest that construction is expected to commence by September. Haven't we seen many such deadlines in the past? Ho, Ha, Hum! I will wait for the first few bricks to be laid before being assured of its taking off. In the meantime read this detailed report in The Hindu.
