Tata rethinks Bangalore airport project
The Tatas-led consortium will make a fresh assessment of the economic viability of the proposed international airport at Devanahalli in Bangalore Rural district due to inordinate delay by the Centre in clearing the project.
Talking to newsmen in Bangalore after a 90-minute discussion with Ratan Tata Karnataka Chief Minister J H Patel said Tata had not stated that the project had been shelved.
The consortium partners, who included multi-national Raytheon and the Changi airport of Singapore, had expressed apprehension over the economic viability of the project in view of the delay and said they would review the project afresh.
Tata declined to reply to newsmen's questions stating that Patel would brief them. He is scheduled to meet Civil Aviation Minister Ananth Kumar next week and discuss the project with him again.
