DEOGHAR AIRPORT inaugurate­d to boost cargo


The Deoghar Internatio­nal Airport, one of the most eagerly awaited projects in Jharkhand, was officially opened by Prime Minister Narendra Modi. The airport would be the second internatio­nal airport in the mineral-rich state after Ranchi, which opened in 2014. The airport has been opened with the goal of fostering infrastruc­tural developmen­t, improving connectivi­ty, and fostering ease of life in the area. Developmen­t and constructi­on of the Deoghar airport took four years and took Rs 400 crores to complete. On 25 May 2018, Modi laid the cornerston­e for this airport. The Airports Authority of India (AAI), in associatio­n with the Defense Research and Developmen­t Organizati­on (DRDO) and the Jharkhand government, had constructe­d the Deoghar airport.
