Committed to augmentation of Airport capacity through NABH (Nextgen Airports for Bharat) (Relevant for GS Prelims, GS Mains Paper III; Economics)

NABH (NextGen Airports for BHarat) Nirman initiative is for building airport capacity.

The three key aspects of NABH Nirman are

(1) fair and equitable land acquisition,

(2) long-term master plan for airport and regional development and

(3) balanced economics for all stakeholders.

Improving passenger amenities, promoting cargo handling facilities and early operationalization of 56 new airports under UDAN scheme are focus areas while simultaneously working on improving regional connectivity and improving passenger services.

Targets under NABH initiative
The government is seeking to provide a big push to the country’s civil aviation sector, aiming at five-fold growth in passenger traffic to a billion trips a year. Airport Authority of India (AAI) has 124 airports and it is proposed to expand by more than five times the airport capacity to handle a billion trips a year under a new initiative — NABH Nirman.
