New constructions near Dr Babasaheb Ambedkar International Airport are set become costlier following the new norms added by the Airport Authority of India to obtain the no objections certificate (NOC).
Apart from obtaining the NOC, a large fee will have to be paid for the survey of the land from the approved authority. The AAI however, has not revealed yet that how many have applied for a new NOC so far? AAI’s responsibilities have now been reduced after the airport transfer, but surprisingly, AAI officials are taking precautions and not providing information on this important issue.
Notice has been given to 30 high-rise buildings built near the airport, but so far, not even an inch of such building has been reduced. The Airport Authority of India, Nagpur (AAI) first gave them NOC, then after the review of Mihan India Limited (MIL), some NOC were withdrawn and some were canceled. The airport authority is silent on how many cases have been resolved and what action was taken to reduce the extra height of high-rise building.
It is noteworthy to mention here that in 2018 a survey was conducted to find aeronautical obstructions. Along with this, new guidelines were issued regarding the NOC of buildings affecting the movement of aircraft. Some height limits were also increased. Due to this, construction can be allowed at some places to a higher height.
AAI and MIL together organised an awareness program about 5 months ago in a luxurious hotel on Wardha Road. The awareness programme however, failed to fulfil its purpose because people are still coming to the airport to inquire about the NOC. It is clear that many aspects related to them are not clear.
