MUMBAI : A private airport will be built on the border of Baramati, Purandar and Daund talukas. About three and a half thousand acres of land will be acquired in eight villages of these three talukas. A logistics park will also be developed by the Adani group in which an airport is proposed.
The Adani group’s private airport has ended the plans of Pune International Airport in Purandar. When the international airport in Purandar taluka was almost finalized, the proposal for a new site sent by the Maharashtra state government was rejected by the central government. But the real reason behind this is the private airport of Adani in Baramati taluka.
The Ministry of Defence had revoked the site clearance for the Pune international airport in Purandar. While the issue of whether the airport will be constructed in the old space and whether it will be allowed, Adani Group has now proposed to set up multimedia logistics parks in the vicinity of the proposed airport or even in some villages within the airport area.
For this multimedia logistics park, three and a half thousand acres of land in Rajuri, Pise, Naigaon and Pimpri of Purandar taluka, Ambi, Bhondwe wadi and Chandgude wadi Baramati talukas and Khor in Daund; will be acquired for this project. The Maharashtra Industrial Development Corporation (MIDC) surveyed the site and proposed a layout of a multimedia logistics park to the Central Government.
The proposal was sent for approval and it was recently approved by the High Power Committee, a senior MIDC official informed. “The MIDC will issue a notification for Adani’s private multi-modal logistics park after receiving the required NOCs. The construction of an airport with a cargo hub is an important step in this logistics park,” said officials.
