The Union Cabinet, chaired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, on Wednesday gave its nod for the permanent transfer of a piece of land belonging to Airports Authority of India (AAI) to Lucknow Metro Rail Corporation (LMRC), an official statement said.

The 1,899 square metre land at the Chaudhary Charan Singh International Airport in Lucknow would be used by LMRC for the construction of entry/exit point for Transport Nagar Metro Station.

"This is an operational requirement of LMRC. This is a public utility project of mass transportation to be used by the public at large, and will provide better connectivity and convenience to general public," said the Civil Aviation Ministry release.

In another similar decision, the Cabinet also approved swapping of 10.25 acres of AAI land at Rajahmundry airport in Andhra Pradesh with equivalent piece of land offered by the state government.

The land offered by AAI will be used for the purpose of road construction along the periphery of the airport to provide connectivity to neighbouring villages around the Rajahmundry airport.

"The proposal is intended to provide road connectivity to the villages around the Rajahmundry airport, in order to facilitate ease of access to the general public of the area. The proposal will provide road connectivity and thus, ease of access to the general public, especially facilitating access to farmers to their agricultural land," the Ministry said in the statement.
