New Delhi: A Parliamentary Committee has
asked the Civil Aviation Ministry to expeditiously get the
land transferred for the expansion of Dabolim airport in Goa.

The Committee on Petitions was hearing Goan MP
Sardinha Francisco`s request on expansion and renovation of
the airport.

It said it was "constrained" to know that the
ownership dispute between Goa and Navy over a piece of 2.52
acres of land was still unresolved.

The report also observed that there was lack of
"concerted and co-ordinated" efforts on part of all the
authorities concerned with the case.

The Committee said being the nodal agency, the Civil
Aviation Ministry should "pursue the matter vigorously" and in
right earnest with all the concerned authorities so that the
requisite land is transferred to Airports Authority of India
and the airport can be expanded.
