KATHMANDU — The government has endorsed the Tourism Ministry’s proposal to obtain more land for Gautam Buddha Regional International airport.

The Cabinet on Tuesday has approved to acquire an extra 288 bighas of land for the construction of the Airport in Bhairahawa.

According to Tourism Secretary Prem Rai, the government will soon start the procedure of conducting a survey for the land acquisition.

“The plan to acquire the additional land is aimed at avoiding any possible congestion at the international airport in future. The airport will also require a larger space for a radar station, security base and runway,” he said.

The ministry has stated Rs9.74 billion rupees required to procure the land in its proposal.

This is the second land obtaining proposal endorsed by the Cabinet for the airport project in the last three months.

On January 13, the Cabinet had permitted the Civil Aviation Authority of Nepal (CAAN) to procure 140 bighas, and the government had put aside Rs2.49 billion for remuneration installments to land owners.
