    airportsThe proposal for a new airport at Jewar in Greater Noida may finally see the light of the day with the government considering a review of the rule which disallows a second airport within 150 kms of an existing one. This was indicated by Mahesh Sharma, who took charge as the Minister of State for Civil Aviation. Stressing the need to have an international airport in the National Capital Region (NCR), Mr. Sharma said that the new airport project in Jewar is an important project. The proposed airport would go against the existing policy as the distance between the proposed site for the new venture and the IGI Airport in Delhi is less than 150 km.
