Cabinet approves proposal for expansion of Civil Air Terminal at Chandigarh Airport


June 14, 2012 - New Delhi

The Union Cabinet on Thursday approved the proposal of the Ministry of Defence for mutual exchange of 2.50 acres of land between the administration of the Union Territory of Chandigarh and Indian Air Force (IAF) under Ministry of Defence for expansion of the Civil Air Terminal at Chandigarh Airport.

The Airports Authority of India (AAI) plans to expand Chandigarh Airport in order to augment air services from it. However, as the AAI does not have land to provide to the IAF, which is required for any transfer of defence land, the UT Administration undertook to transfer an equal value of land at Sector 31-D in Chandigarh to the IAF. This mutual exchange was approved by the Cabinet.

The defence land is to be transferred to the administration of the Union Territory of Chandigarh on a permanent basis in lieu of an equal extent of land being transferred to the IAF.
