Another Maharashtra airport plan ‘lands’ in trouble

MUMBAI: After the Navi Mumbai international airport, the planned international airport at Chakan in Pune has also run into land acquisition trouble. The government is facing difficulties in acquiring the 3,300 hectares of land required for the project. Initial plan was to acquire land from seven villages in Chakan. However, since most of the affected land is under irrigation, villages here have presented a stiff opposition to the move. An alternative plan to set up the airport on land acquired for a private SEZ in the Khed-Chakan area has also hit a hurdle with the SEZ developer unwilling to part with all the land. On Friday, chief minister Prithviraj Chavan
