Pune: Following the State government’s decision to accord status of special planning authority (SPA) to the Maharashtra Airport Development Corporation Ltd (MADC), the MADC will now start designing the Development Control (DC) rules for the 2,832-hectare land which has been notified for development of Chhatrapati Sambhaji Raje International Airport in Purandar.
The area proposed by MADC for construction of the airport has been declared as notified area after consulting the Town Planning Directorate and is spread across villages of Vanpuri, Kumbharvalan, Udhachaiwadi, Ekhatpur, Munjavdi, Khanavdi and Pargaon in Purandar.
Speaking about the development Suresh Kakani, Managing Director of MADC said that MADC is in process of designing the DC rules for the notified area. Speaking on the land acquisition process, Kakani said they are yet to communicate with the locals of Purandar as the process of land acquisition is yet to start. “It will take more than 7 to 8 months time to frame the DC rules,” added Kakani.
The District Collector has suggested different compensation model for people whose land will be acquired. The models include a one-time settlement, allowance or provide a commercially developed land. Kakani said MADC will be offering either one compensation model or combination of compensation models, based on the situation.
