Agencies, New Delhi

The Government has in principle approved to construct a second international airport in Delhi-NCR in Jewar region soon. Union Civil Aviation Minister Ashok Gajapathi Raju today informed that the Ministry has granted permission to construct the airport in Jewar region in 3,000 hectare area, which will be ready in the next five to six years.

The estimated cost for the construction of the first phase of the airport will be around Rs 10,000-crore.
