New Delhi, April 20 (IANS) Union Minister Jayant Sinha on Thursday said the new state government in Uttar Pradesh has asked for a fresh technical evaluation for setting up a green field airport at Jewar, located in Gautam Budh Nagar district, adjoining national capital city Delhi.

According to Minister of State for Civil Aviation Sinha, the current BJP state government in Uttar Pradesh had written to his ministry for a technical evaluation of the proposed site.

The minister pointed out that there was a need to consider development of a green field airport at Jewar, since the IGI airport located here will be utilising its full passenger handling capacity in another 4-8 years time.

Earlier, a technical evaluation of the proposed site at Jewar was conducted, but due to the time lapse there was a need to conduct a fresh study, Sinha said.
