New Terminal

Both central and J&K government are very keen for the execution of work on the new terminal on Jammu airport and recently Div Com issued directions for early handover of land to Airports Authority for execution of work on New Terminal

He chaired a meeting of the concerned officers to review the progress on demarcation of land for development of new Terminal at Jammu Airport as there is an urgent need for this new terminal in the expansion program on this airport.

The runway at the Jammu Airport has been expanded and the 30% load penalty at Jammu airport has been removed.  It will bring huge relief to the airlines and passengers. The government has decided to build a new airport terminal adjacent to the existing airport at Jammu.  The land measuring 974 Kanal has already been identified. It will soon be handed over to the Airports Authority of India to build a state-of-the-art 25,000 Sqm new terminal building.

He discussed in detail about the identified land shifting of Government offices etc.

Major land around 877 Kanals of the Animal Husbandry Department will be acquired for the new terminal for which the Div Com directed the Joint Director Animal Husbandry and PWD to make assessment of structures and share the final cost of the same.

He directed the Animal Husbandry Department to immediately shift the animals and other office buildings to other alternative locations. The Deputy Commissioner Jammu was asked to demarcate the land and handover the same to Airport authorities so that work can be executed on New Airport terminal smoothly.
