New Delhi: The Ministry of Civil Aviation has cancelled the approval to the controversial private airport project at Aranmula in Pathanamthitta district.
The Ministry has informed the KGS group, promoters of the project, about its decision to cancel the permission.
Union Environment Minister Prakash Javadekar had said on Tuesday that the Narendra Modi government had never favoured the controversial private airport project and no sanction had been given since the government assumed office last year.
The project had also failed to get clearance from the Defence Ministry.
With the latest development, the future of the project has become uncertain.
