The National Democratic Alliance (NDA) Government has decided to put on hold the previous once ambitious plan of developing low-cost airports in non-metro cities.
The government is moving faster to boost its urban development mission as it plans to splash a whopping Rs 98,000 crore. Today, the cabinet has approved the creation of 100 smart cities with an outlay of Rs 48,000 crore. The projects will be completed by 2022 under the public-private-partnership model.
Working at a breakneck speed to kickstart the economy, the Narendra Modi-led BJP Government is looking to give a big boost to the infrastructure sector. And in one of the first few steps to achieve that, the new Government has cleared seven projects worth Rs 21,000 crore, recently.
