NetajiSubhas Chandra Bose international airport to be privatised

The central government has decided to privatise the Netaji Subhas Chan­d­ra Bose International Airport in Kolkata. MoCA has prepared a list of 25 air­ports to be privatised across the country. The terms and conditions for bi­­d­ding are in the process of being finalised. The airports that will be pri­vati­sed in the second phase include Chennai airport, Varanasi Airport, and smaller airports such as Indore, Jabalpur and Kushinagar. As a part of this privatisation plan, a large airport could be clubbed with a smaller one, following which a bidding process will be initiated to sell them as a single entity.
