“With this, CIDCO has achieved an important milestone in the NMIA project. This was possible due to the cooperation of the Project Affected People (PAP) of NMIA. The work of NMIA is proceeding as per the scheduled timeline and the project is on track,” Sanjay Mukherjee, Vice-Chairman and Managing Director, CIDCO, said.

CIDCO is developing an international airport project on an area of 1,160 hectares by acquiring 10 villages in Panvel Taluka of Raigad district.

“For the rehabilitation of those affected by the airport project, CIDCO is developing Pushpak Nagar, a complete rehabilitation and resettlement area with all the physical, social and cultural infrastructure near the airport area,” Mukherjee added.

Public buildings, churches as well as public and privately-owned 56 temples have been relocated to the rehabilitation area and the idols have been shifted with the support of the PAPs.

“A total of 27 constructions including community temples, schools and cemeteries have been evicted. Important pre-development works in the airport area have already been completed,” Mukherjee said.
