Odisha set to take advantage from UDAN scheme




 In its bid to take advantage from the Ude Deshki Amm Nagarik (UDAN) scheme of the Centre, State government today sought short term project report for operationalization of airports at Utkela and Jeypore by end of this month.

The decision in this regard was taken at a review meeting of the State Level Monitoring Committee presided over by chief secretary A P Padhi.

Padhi asked the executive engineers of concerned districts to submit short term project report by end of this month. He also directed the authorities to expedite preparation of long term DPRs for full phased development of these Airports.

UDAN scheme is being implemented in Odisha in joint collaboration between State and central government. Padhi said that both the unserved and under-served areas would get priority under the scheme.

He said four Airports at Utkela, Jeypore, Jharsuguda, Rourkela would be developed for regional air connectivity. Biju Patnaik International Airport, Bhubaneswar has also been included in the list for regional connectivity from State capital.






Editorial

Précis 2017
From asking his party men to ‘live a simple life and serve the people’ to taunting the BJP for its ‘crocodile tears’, Chief Minister and BJD supremo Naveen Patnaik has not only become politically invincible, he seems to be so in the coming years too.
