"Noida International Airport will cater to 30-50 million passengers per year over the next 10-15 years", Raju said at a press briefing held at the Rajiv Gandhi Bhavan here which is the headquarters of the Ministry of Civil Aviation. Multiple political parties have tried to piggyback on the project for gaining votes and the issue also resulted in a tussle between the state and Centre in 2013, as people anxiously waited for the promise to be fulfilled.Setting up an worldwide airport in Greater Noida will ease traffic at the Indira Gandhi global Airport in Delhi.

The estimated cost for the construction of the first phase of the airport will be around Rs 10,000-crore. "The airport will be a growth driver not only for NCR but also western UP".

The UP government had in April sought a fresh "technical evaluation" for the proposed global airport at Jewar in the state.

The clearance for the long-pending airport project was given by the Ministry of Civil Aviation's Steering Committee, which met on Friday.

3,000 hectares of land, required for the airport project, has been notified by the Yamuna Expressway Industrial Development Authority.

"We expect that the first phase of the Airport will be operational in 5 years", Sinha said. In June 2016, DMRC had told YEIDA that it was too early to prepare a Techno Economical Feasibility Report (TEFR) for the proposed corridor and suggested it be done after five years.

In 2001, the then UP chief minister Rajnath Singh proposed the idea of an airport located in Greater Noida.

The plan to build a new airport at Jewar was first submitted by the Mayawati in 2003, when she was Uttar Pradesh chief minister. "This should have been done a long time ago but it repeatedly delayed due to the tussle between the Centre and state, besides other administrative reasons", said AN Dhawan, secretary general, Federation of Noida Residents Welfare Association (FONRWA).The state government in 2013 made a decision to shift the project to Agra, 200km away from the IGI Airport. The IGIA is being developed and managed by a consortium led by GMR. Contracts for this public-private partnership project will be awarded after competitive bidding, the statement said.

"However, this airport may also (just like Navi Mumbai Airport) have difficulty in generating sufficient bidder interest due to the pre-emption right available to the incumbent developer and in case government does not undertake key pre-development activities prior to putting the project to bid".
