In a significant development by the Eknath Shinde-led Maharashtra government, the under-construction Navi Mumbai International Airport will become operation in 2024.

This statement was made by Maharashtra Deputy Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis while addressing the Maratha Chamber of Commerce, Industries and Agriculture (MCCIA).

For those unversed, the new airport was proposed in 1997 and received the government's approval in 2007. The project got delayed due to the land acquisition issues securing necessary government permissions, including the environmental clearance.

He also assured that the "industrial culture" of Maharashtra will be back on track soon. Every stakeholder has to unite and work hard to make Maharashtra number one again, Deputy CM added.

In his address, Fadnavis also highlighted important projects like Pune Metro, EV transportation etc., and said the ring road will prove to be the growth engine for the Pune region.

He said the government has acknowledged the urgent need for the Purandar airport in the Pune district and that the government is taking efforts for the same. There is a need to connect the Navi Mumbai and Purandar airports.

Maharashtra's economy should reach USD one trillion if India has to achieve the USD 5 trillion target, Fadnavis added.

He stressed the importance of the Pune Metropolitan Regional Development Authority (PMRDA) and Mumbai Regional Development Authority (MMRDA) for infrastructure and said Maharashtra is the Start-Up capital of India.
