Meet to discuss land acquisition for airport

Plan to speed up the process
137 acres of land needed for airport development
176 houses, temple, and mosque on identified land


31 March 2010

Staff Reporter, Kozhikode:

A meeting of people's representatives and officials concerned in Malappuram and Kozhikode districts will be convened shortly to chalk out a plan to speed up the land acquisition for the development of the Calicut international airport at Karipur.

Pradeep Kumar, MLA, said here on Tuesday that he was informed about the meeting in reply to a submission he had made in the State Assembly.

The land needed for the airport is 137 acres.

Following stiff resistance from the people whose land has to be acquired, the Malappuram Collector, at one point of time, could not even collect the details of land ownerships.

Amid resistance

However, in January a special team of the district administration managed to garner the information.

The land identified for takeover is at Pallikkal village in Tirurangadi grama panchayat.

There are 176 houses, a temple and a mosque in the land.

About 20 acres has to be identified for rehabilitating the families that face eviction.

The cost of the rehabilitation scheme is being worked out.

The land will be handed over to the Airports Authority of India.
