Aug 29, 2014 11:11 IST

The Cabinet Committee on Economic Affairs (CCEA) on 27 August 2014 approved the swapping of Save Our Soul (SOS) village land in Borjhar, Assam with the Airport Authority of India’s (AAI) airport land. As per the approval the SOS village’s 2397 square meter land will be swapped with AAI’s equivalent airport land that measures 2397 square meter.

This approval will facilitate the construction of three hangers at the Lokpriya Gopinath Bordoloi International Airport (LGBIA) in Guwahati. The decks for the installation of hangers at the LGBIA have been cleared to meet the rising number of scheduled and non-scheduled aircraft in Northeast India.

The Union Cabinet meet that cleared the decks of the land-swap agreement between SOS and AAI was chaired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

Construction of the hangers at Lokpriya Gopinath Bordoloi International Airport will facilitate development of the airport leading to a greater social inclusion of the region.
