New Delhi: Delhi Chief Minister Sheila
Dikshit on Friday visited the newly built Terminal 3 at Indira
Gandhi International Airport here which is likely to be
inaugurated in the first week of July.
A presentation was also made to the Chief Minister about
the facilities to be introduced in the new terminal.
Dikshit was briefed about the details on landscaping
inside and on approach roads to terminal 3 and steps taken to
improve service standards at IGI Airport.
The development of IGI Airport is taking place under a
phased Master Plan. As part of the first phase, Delhi
International Airport Ltd has already commissioned a new
runway and domestic terminal at IGIA.
The plush Terminal 3 would be one of the largest in the
world, and have business centres, malls and a hotel.
Officials of DIAL, which is currently working for
modernisation and restructuring of the Airport, requested
Dikshit to instruct Delhi Transco Ltd to complete work on 220
KV power line by July. DTL is a Delhi Government entity.
They also urged Dikshit to instruct Delhi Jal Board to
complete the sewage water drainage scheme from the airport to
Bijwasan area and ask the PWD to complete the phase-II of
storm water drainage project from Mahipalpur to IGI Airport.
