The new terminal building is just next to the present building it is two storey ground floor for arrival and upper floor for depature the building is totaly completed the control tower and cargo building is also completed the only thing is that internal work is not done yet.It is suppose to be totaly air condetion with 8 counters with 60 feet belt for luggage clearing with two ascelators and two lifts with flight information tv and PA sistem. It is suppose to be completed in august but on 8 of march I read in the tribune news that the civil aviation autority has suspended the work because they want some modification to be done to the the present degin and the local airport autority has protested that the work should carry on and the modification should be done later once the building is completed. because the old building cannot cope with the passangers arriving. since singapore airlines is flying three times a week to amritsar on may the 15 air india will be flying three times a week from tronto to bremingham and to amritsar .Malaysian airlines and Thai airlines are also waiting for approval to lend in amritsar.So with all these airlines lending there they need the new terminal to be completed soon as possible eny modification to the terminal at present will only delay the opening.

Thanks alot gill. I visited this airport 5 years ago, when i had a 7 week holiday with my family, from uk to india. I remembered it was an air india flight from london to amritsar via delhi. that time, i landed amritsar airport in the dead of night-2am. everything did not make sense at all-it calls its self INTERNATIONAL but there is no sign at all. Its just an office/factory unit, surrounded by a thick dense of trees, outside the terminal building. The arrival hall was a large shed, with 3 or 4 counters and there was no conveyor belt, just your baggage is dropped on the doorstep and you collect it. Custom clearence-no x-ray machines, just men search handbags and everything by HAND. Another thing I forgot to mention, the floor of the terminal looks like cement and marble, as in an ordinary floor in a house/villa in the punjab. Outside the terminal building was ABSOLUTELY a waste land, with cars and vans parked, nolighting, no proper facilities like toilets, waiting halls or STD/PCO phone booths. I remember there was a large whitish tower that looks like its made out of stone and cement, it had some stairs in a spiral way, could you tell me what is that and have they removed it or not? This was opposite the old arrival terminal, which looks like a shed. The deaprture terminal was wide enough, but it looks like a hosptal, where you check-in then you go through immigration and custom clearence through a corridor. Does this looks the same at all or not?
Please give your opinions and If I said anything wrong, then please don't offend me

Does anybody know when the new terminal is to be completed? A number of airlines would start flying to Amritsar if the infrastructure was upgraded. Even small states like Kerla have completed their international airports. Funding must be allocated to this project.

Panel to discuss Rajasansi airport work  
Our Correspondent  
 
Amritsar, May 2
Member of the civil aviation parliamentary panel M.S. Gill said a special meeting of the parliamentary committee has been convened on May 11 to discuss the issue of the stalled work of the terminal building of the Rajasansi airport.  
 
Dr Gill, while speaking to newspersons here yesterday after inspecting the airport, said he had been distressed at the continuing neglect of the only airport in the state. He said he had apprised the Prime Minister, Dr Manmohan Singh, and the Minister for Civil Aviation, Mr Praful Patel, about the discontinuation of the construction work of the terminal building due to last minute change in the design of the outer structure of the building. He said the minister should not have given this direction to re-design the facade, which had been earlier approved, as the construction was going on as per plan.
 
The former Chief Election Commissioner said more than 50 international and domestic weekly flights operated from this airport, which was lacking the basic facilities. He said the airport operates from refurbished temporary sheds with negligible passenger facilities and the new building meant for 500 passengers has been under construction for over five years.
 
He added that almost 30 per cent of the air traffic from the Indira Gandhi International Airport was being generated by Punjab and added that the government should take immediate steps to restart the construction of the stalled building.
 
He expressed dismay that Air India had started its express flights with 30 per cent cheaper fare to the Gulf countries, with 30 and more flights operating from Kerala and Mumbai while neglecting Punjab. He urged the minister concerned to visit the airport to get first-hand knowledge of the problems faced by the passengers and take immediate steps to redress these.
 
Mr Gill asked the Central Government to lift the “disturbed area state tag” from Punjab as it was inhibiting the grant of visas to Pakistanis wanting to visit the state. He said he would take up the issue with the Prime Minister.
 
Dr Gill strongly favoured for release of Sikh youth languishing in Jodhpur jails without trial. Taking up the issue of the SEZ (special economic zone), Dr Gill said the Punjab Government must take initiative to get this zone through on an urgent basis. He said the Prime Minister had already announced approved SEZ, for which he had promised Rs 1100 crore.
 
Earlier, Dr Gill inaugurated a computer lab and guest room at the boys’ hostel at Guru Nanak Dev University.

Govt refutes Tarlochan’s allegation over Amritsar airport  
Tribune News Service  
 
New Delhi, May 3
Rajya Sabha MPs Tarlochan Singh (Independent) and M. S. Gill (Congress) today alleged that the work at the international terminal of the Amritsar airport has stopped completely.  
 
They demanded that the Union Government should ensure that the Amritsar airport was soon converted into an international airport.
 
Raising the issue during the Question Hour in the Upper House, Mr Tarlochan Singh said the work at the Amritsar airport had been stopped under the directions of the Civil Aviation Ministry as the proposed international terminal building had a dome-like shape.
 
He urged the Union Government to ensure speedy construction of the Amritsar airport's international terminus.
 
Replying to their questions, Minister for Civil Aviation Praful Patel insisted that the work at the international terminus of the Amritsar airport had not been stopped.
 
He said his ministry had called for redesigning of the terminal building to ensure that it was more spacious and could meet future requirements.

Dear everybody, please don't be offended by these news reports about the delay of the construction work of Amritsar airport. All of us must email Ministry of Civil aviation which is webdesk@civilav.delhi.nic.in to clear the hurdles in construction of Amritsar airport .These emails will force them to act and think about the inconvenience of passengers.
 
The quicker the terminal building is completed the more chance it has new airlines to start such as VIRGIN, BMI, BA, MAS, THAI AIR and many others.

CM to flag off Air-India flight to England, Canada  
Our Correspondent  
 
Amritsar, May 11
The Chief Minister, Capt Amarinder Singh, and the Union Minister for Civil Aviation, Mr Praful Patel, will flag off the Air-India flight to England and Canada from Sri Guru Ram Das International Airport on May 15, which is being revived after a gap of 20 years.  
 
The station manager, Air-India, Mr Ashwani Arora, told The Tribune here today that all the arrangements for the launch of the national carrier’s flight had been completed. A team from the Civil Aviation Department, Canada, also visited the airport on a familiarisation tour to get first-hand information about the flight pattern and the passenger profiles here last week.
 
Mr Arora said that there was a tremendous enthusiasm among the large Punjabi NRI community based in the Doaba region and the inaugural flight was fully booked. Air-India was receiving a number of enquiries for this first-ever direct flight connecting the holy city with Birmingham and Toronto. He said that Air-India had designated Boeing 777 for this route.  
 
Air-India had been operating Balle Balle Birmingham from Rajasansi airport, but due to militancy the flight was discontinued. The re-launch of the flight to Birmingham and also connecting Punjabi-dominated city of Toronto have once again provided the much-needed relief to the Punjabi community settled in Canada and England.

Punjab to promote religious tourism
Praful, Amarinder flag off A-I flight to Toronto
Ashok Sethi
 
Rajasansi (Amritsar), May 15
The Union Minister for Civil Aviation, Mr Praful Patel, today brushed aside the resentment over the stalled construction of the terminal of Sri Guru Ramdass International Airport and assured the public that a bigger and modern complex would be built.
 
Addressing a gathering during the flag-off ceremony of the inaugural Air-India’s Delhi-Amritsar-Birmingham-Toronto flight here today, Mr Patel said top priority was being given to restart the construction of the ultra-modern airport. He, however, said the project could be delayed by another six months as the Ministry of Civil Aviation, in consultation with the Airport Authority of India (AAI), was preparing a blueprint for the its upgradation.
 
Earlier, the flight was flagged off from New Delhi by Tourism Minister Renuka Chowdhury and Mr Patel.
 
He said the Air-India was prepared to make this flight operational on a daily basis instead of thrice a week at present in view of its growing demand. A direct international flight of Air-India Express, an economical flight from Amritsar to Dubai, was also on the anvil. He said the Air-India had recently launched a direct flight from Kerala to Dubai and another direct flight from Kolkata to London was likely to commence shortly.  
 
Referring to the setting up of a green field airport at Ladowal between Ludhiana and Jalandhar, Mr Patel said the project had been cleared by the government and was in the advanced stage of implementation. It would come up on the same pattern of green field airports already set up in Mumbai, Navi Mumbai, Hyderabad, Bangalore and Lucknow. He said Chandigarh Airport would also be upgraded to meet the growing need of the people of this area.  
 
Punjab Chief Minister, Amarinder Singh, said the government was set to chalk out a roadmap to boost religious tourism in the state.
 
He said the government was contemplating to develop religious tourism by connecting Sri Anandpur Sahib, Chamkaur Sahib, Fatehgarh Sahib, Takht Sri Damdama Sahib and Sri Harmandir Sahib. Another circuit of Hindu shrines from Naina Devi, Maisarkhana, Durgiana Temple and Vaishno Devi would also be developed in a big way.  
 
Later Capt Amarinder Singh along with Mr Patel flagged off the flight.
 
Meanwhile, the General Manager (Architect) of the AAI, Mr Harpal Singh, today made the detail presentation of the new design of the Airport Complex to the Minister of Civil Aviation and visiting dignitaries.
 
The Director Airport, Mr V.S. Mulekar, said the minister showed keen interest in the development of the airport and said the complex would be ready within a year.
 
The minister was accompanied by MPs attached to the Ministry of Civil Aviation and Mr Tarlochan Singh, Chairman, National Minorities Commission, among others.

Is there any more news about the completion date for the new airport terminal? The last I heard was that a date of October was given, but then it was written elsewhere that a years delay could occur.
 
Are there any more airlines planning to fly to Amritsar ? we desperately need a direct flight from London.

Amritsar airport can now handle exports  
Posted by: editor on Wednesday, June 22, 2005 - 07:12 AM GMT+5:30
     
  News <TBODY> AMRITSAR: Exporters and importers of Punjab have got an opportunity to trade via Raja Sansi Airport at Amritsar because the airport has earned the status of a “customs notified” one.  
   
“Finance Minister P Chidambaram, during our recent meeting, told me Raja Sansi Airport had been declared ‘customs notified’ and exporters and importers can use the cargo facility at the airport,” MP Rana Gurjit Singh said yesterday.  
   
He said the finance ministry had amended 16 customs notifications issued under various export promotion schemes to permit imports and exports through the airport.  
   
“I told Chidambaram the Central Board of Excise and Customs (CBEC) had not yet given approval for custodianship to the Airports Authority of India Cargo complex, due to which shippers from Punjab still prefer Indira Gandhi Airport, Delhi, in view of quicker customs certifications and claiming duty draw entitlements,” Singh said.  
   
He said he had written a letter to Prime Minister Manmohan singh to take steps to set up a special economic zone in Amritsar, as announced by him, to benefit exports from the north.  
   
Meanwhile, exporters have welcomed the customs notified status for Raja Sansi airport and said this would be beneficial for them.  
   
Sharad Aggarwal, All India Chairman of Hand Tools Panel of Engineering Export Promotion Council (EEPC), said this would give a boost to exports from Punjab. “It will save the cost of sending goods to Delhi and least a day,” he said.  
   
“This will prove beneficial in meeting deadlines for overseas promotion and also it will lead to the development of Amritsar as an important hub for the movement of export and import cargo,” he said, adding that exporters would now be able to get all export incentives like duty drawback, duty entitlement pass book, advance licensing, export promotion capital goods, etc. for export shipments through the airport.  
   
The Hand Tools Exporters Forum and the Jalandhar Focal Point Association thanked Rana Gurjit Singh for his initiative.

Amritsar airport terminal building to become operational by August
Ashok Sethi and Sanjay Bumbroo
Tribune News Service
 
Amritsar, July 17
The much-delayed work on Amritsar's Rajasansi International Airport terminal building, which had remained stalled for a considerable period of time and generated some controversy due to it's redesigning , has finally been given a go-ahead by the Ministry of Civil Aviation. It is likely to become operational next month.  
 
The Chairman of the National Minorities Commission and member of the Parliamentary Panel on Civil Aviation, Mr Tarlochan Singh, told The Tribune on phone from New Delhi that the Minister of Civil Aviation, Mr Praful Patel, had assured the panel that the arrival block of the terminal building phase I was already under construction. It was planned to be completed and put into operation by the end of this month. The equipment for the arrival block had already arrived.  
 
He added that work was continuing simultaneously on the departure area of the terminal building and was likely to be completed by October 2005. The minister promised that the entire terminal building would be ready by November this year. Plans were also underway to expand the terminal building in view of the manifold increase in the passenger traffic at the Amritsar International Airport.
 
The Director Airport, Mr V.S Mulekar, too said the ministry had given the go-ahead and the entire conveyor belt equipment and other amenities were being added on war footing to complete the project and to commence the operation by next month.
 
Mr Tarlochan Singh said during the Parliamentary meeting of the Ministry of Civil Aviation held on July 11 he had strongly favoured that the cargo potential of Punjab should be fully exploited to benefit the local industry and agriculture. He had suggested that Air-India and Indian Airlines should commence cargo flights from the Amritsar airport. Air-India had already offered 15 tonnes of cargo payloads on its flights to Birmingham and Canada for the benefit of exporters based in Punjab.
 
A Rajya Sabha Member, Mr Tarlochan Singh, lauded the ministry for starting Air-India flight from Amritsar and added that the Air-India Express, a low-cost airline, was keen on starting its operations from Amritsar very soon. He added that the Air- India Express was already operating from three cities in Kerala and had become popular.
 
The Airport Authority of India, despite having been under fire for not providing passenger amenities, had not ordered 500 additional trolleys at the airport. However, it was expected that trolleys would be added within the next two months.
 
Mr Tarlochan Singh pointed out that the present air-conditioning in both arrival and departure lounge, including security areas, would be further augmented and the process was likely to be completed by the end of August. He added that at present the Amritsar airport was charging only domestic rates from the various airlines, and no international airport charges were being made.
 
At present more than 58 flights are operating during the week taking passengers to various destinations around the globe. More than two and half lakh passengers use the airport around the year and by the end of 2010 the figure is going to jump at least five lakh.

Air Deccan Will Introduce More Flights To Chandigarh, Amritsar in India
Aug 02, 05 | 11:10 pm

 
By M.M. Khanna, Chandigarh (India)
The Airline Industry had been showing never-before seen interest in the City and Region of Chandigarh. The country 's first low-cost airline, Air Deccan, recently announced two more flights to Chandigarh and to Amritsar from Delhi, putting Ludhiana back on the Air Map.
 
This announcement came when Jet Airways unveiled plans to introduce Boeings to connect the city with Mumbai and Bangalore.  
 
Air Deccan Managing Director Capt. Gopinath was here in the city in connection with announcing of  tie-up arrangements with Reliance Web World for booking, cancellation and re-schduling of tickets through the country. He said that his company had been interested to expand their operations in the North and link cities like Ludhiana.
 
Previous to this both Indian Airline and Jet Airways started flights from Delhi to Ludhiana but later discontinued operations. He said that their company had been very much satisfied with the 70% occupancy being maintained by the Chandigarh-Delhi flight and encouraged the introduction of another flight on the same route in the coming months.  
 
He further said that in the beginning of this month, Chandigarh flights would be extended to Jammu, to operate three times in a week. He said that his company had already ordered 60 brand new aircraft, which would be delivered within a period of 5 years.

Air Deccan Will Introduce More Flights To Chandigarh, Amritsar in India  
Aug 02, 05 | 11:10 pm

 
By M.M. Khanna, Chandigarh (India)  
The Airline Industry had been showing never-before seen interest in the City and Region of Chandigarh. The country 's first low-cost airline, Air Deccan, recently announced two more flights to Chandigarh and to Amritsar from Delhi, putting Ludhiana back on the Air Map.  
 
This announcement came when Jet Airways unveiled plans to introduce Boeings to connect the city with Mumbai and Bangalore.  
 
Air Deccan Managing Director Capt. Gopinath was here in the city in connection with announcing of  tie-up arrangements with Reliance Web World for booking, cancellation and re-schduling of tickets through the country. He said that his company had been interested to expand their operations in the North and link cities like Ludhiana.  
 
Previous to this both Indian Airline and Jet Airways started flights from Delhi to Ludhiana but later discontinued operations. He said that their company had been very much satisfied with the 70% occupancy being maintained by the Chandigarh-Delhi flight and encouraged the introduction of another flight on the same route in the coming months.  
 
He further said that in the beginning of this month, Chandigarh flights would be extended to Jammu, to operate three times in a week. He said that his company had already ordered 60 brand new aircraft, which would be delivered within a period of 5 years.

Minister urged to improve airport facilities  
Pawan Kumar
 
The Chairman of the National Commission for Minorities, and Rajya Sabha Member, Mr Tarlochan Singh, has urged the Minister for Civil Aviation, Mr Praful Patel, to depute a committee of senior officers to assess the immediate requirements of Rajasansi International Airport at Amritsar.  
 
Mr Tarlochan Singh, in a letter to the minister, a copy of which was released to Amritsar Plus, appreciated the “go ahead” signal given by the minister for the completion of arrival and departure lounges at the newly-constructed terminal building at the airport.  
 
He said that in view of more than 50 weekly flights being operational from the airport and a large number of passengers using the facilities, the improvement in infrastructure was a must. As the facilities were not up to the mark, there was resentment among NRIs and foreign tourists visiting the Holy City.  
 
It may be recalled that the minister for civil aviation had stalled the construction of the modern terminal building in view of the new design. This caused a considerable delay in the opening of the arrival and departure lounges. Mr Tarlochan Singh added that he had urged the minister to allow the use of the newly-constructed terminal building for the convenience of the passengers.

Amritsar airport to have fabricated cold store  
Poonam Batth
Tribune News Service  
 
Chandigarh, September 6
Following the failure of talks between the Airport Authority of India and central and state agencies regarding the establishment of a permanent cold storage facilities for handling export of perishable cargo, at Amritsar, the Punjab Government is now setting up a fabricated cold store and cool chain facilities.  
 
The facility, being provided in collaboration with the Union Ministry of Agriculture and APEDA (Agriculture Export Promotion and Development Authority), will go a long way in promoting the exports of fresh fruits and vegetables from Punjab to other parts of the world.
 
Giving details, Mr Himmat Singh, Managing Director of Punjab Agri and Export Limited, said the portable and dismantable structure would require only some foundation supports and would have a capacity of 40 tonnes. The estimated cost of this facility will be Rs 65 lakh and the cost will be shared by the Punjab Government, the Union Ministry of Agriculture and APEDA.
 
The expansion of the airport is already under way and it will enable large cargo aircraft to operate from Amritsar. This coupled with the setting up of cold chain facility will enable the loading of fresh fruits and vegetables even during the summer months. At present, because of lack of infrastructural facilities, trial export consignments were getting damaged.
 
While the setting up of the cold store would have taken another year and a half, the fabricated cold store would be ready by November.
 
Already 161 acres have already been handed over to the Airport Authority of India for the expansion of the Amritsar airport. Besides this, the approach road to the airport has been widened. As a result of the measures, industries exporting goods with short shelf-life and fast-moving products will benefit the most. As an ad hoc measure, two refrigerated containers have been stationed at the cargo complex at the airport to facilitate exports.
 
 
 
 
  Passengers irked as flight cancelled  
Our Correspondent  
 
Rajasansi (Amritsar), September 6
The International airport witnessed rowdy scenes after the announcement of the cancellation of Air Slovakia flight.  
 
Agitated passengers and escorting relatives/friends manhandled Flight Manager Amarjit soon after the announcement was made.
 
About 300 ticket holders and those accompanying them for a flight to Bergamo, Italy, had started arriving at about 9 am and waited for the take-off scheduled for 2 pm.  
 
The situation turned tense when angry passengers and others waving tickets mobbed a flight official and started raising slogan against him even as the foreign flight crew of the airlines sat huddled in bus in the parking area.
 
The Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) rescued the official. However, the passengers broke the cordon and ran after him. The official managed to go inside the International Arrival Lounge building with the help of the CISF and a few persons present in the scene.  
 
For nearly three hours the passengers did not budge and continued to raise slogans, demanding refund. The situation eased only after the airlines issued certificates to each passenger citing that “MP Flywell services, Italy, had defrauded the airlines by not paying operating charges and hence the flight has been cancelled.”

When CISF personnel at Rajasansi airport say:
‘May I help you?’  
Rashmi Talwar  
 
The CISF especially designed the ‘politeness orientation programme’ in consultation with the airport authorities to meet the requirements of passengers.  
 
Next time you decide to fly from the Rajasansi International Airport, don’t be surprised if the earlier gruff-sounding CISF security personnel (Central Industrial Service Force) greets you with a cheery “Good Morning!” or politely asks you for the boarding card! He has, after all, gone through a ‘politeness orientation programme.’  
 
The CISF especially designed this programme in consonance with the airport authorities and requirements of the flight passengers.
 
The programme was introduced after complainants were received regarding misbehavior by airport personnel. Hence, the orientation programme was designed to tone down the aggressive behaviour among the security personnel towards passengers, which, authorities said, was bringing a bad name to the airport.
 
“In the weeklong programme, 40 minutes were devoted to learning polite interaction with passengers,” CISF commandant Mr Jarnail Singh told Amritsar Plus.  
 
The programme also specified the time when such behavior is necessitated. Hence, the “30-second interaction during frisking” would not only have a smiling CISF face but also greetings like “hello, welcome, excuse me”. The interaction would include telling the passengers — “These are unavoidable security checks to make your journey safe”, “May I have your boarding card for stamping”, “May I help you” (for old, infirm, disabled or women with children), “Thank you for your cooperation” (while returning boarding card after security check).
 
For foreign tourists visiting the city of the Golden Temple, CISF personnel have been trained to say, “Hope you had a pleasant time/stay.”  
 
“Have a nice flight/ pleasant journey”, “Wish you a speedy recovery (for patients)”, “Please accept our sympathies” (if a passenger is proceeding for a solemn occasion) are some of the other pleasantries one may get to hear soon.  
 
The programme helps the personnel interact in English, Hindi and Punjabi. However, it is still to be seen how far learning is put to practice.  
 
Presently, as many as 184 CISF personnel are on deputation at this highly sensitive airport. Hence, the holy city airport is equipped with an anti-hijacking (quick reaction force) unit and specialised airport security (CISF).

Why no decent flights to Amritsar.......
 
Thats the question NRI's from Punjab should ask. Don't mistake me here.. just compare Bangalore, HYderabad with Amritsar.
 
Number of people from Amritsar or Punjab in west are much higher than Bangalore.... People are  flying to Amritsar since 80's (i can recall Air India International flights). Why Amritsar is still in 80's but new cities are gaining up.
 
Enough of poiniting at politicians.  
 
People from Punjab settled in UK prefer cheaper flights.. low qualities services and not many are on white collar jobs. Same people prefer easy jet or ryan air in Europe... So change your approach and see the change...
 
refuse to fly with low cost flights and see how things wil change...
Live like a King and not slave in west...
 
cheers

Cold storage to come up at Rajasansi  
Varinder Walia and Ashok Sethi  
 
Amritsar, November 3
The Union Government has decided to construct an ultramodern cold storage at an expenditure of Rs 18 crore at the Rajasansi International Airport for perishable goods meant for exporting to various countries.  
 
The Agricultural Marketing Adviser to the Government of India, Mr P.K. Aggarwal, during his visit to the city, said the Union Ministry of Agriculture had cleared the project and the work would start soon.
 
He said to meet the need of fruit and vegetable exporters, temporary shed would be built to provide immediate facility. He said the Punjab Government had been lobbying for the project for a long time and a large number of Indian and foreign companies had been exploring the opportunity to export perishable agriculture produce to Europe and Middle East.
 
Mr Aggarwal said the Airport Authority of India had already earmarked 3,500 sq yd plot for the construction of the complex.
 
According to the feasibility report prepared by Punjab Agro Industries Corporation and the Agriculture Produce and Processed Food Export Development Authority (APEDA), there was an export potential of Rs 100 crore per day, he added.
 
Mr V.S. Mulekar, Director, Airport, said the project would benefit the farming community of the state. He said the Airport Authority of India would extend all possible help to make the project a success.
 
He said the meeting was attended by senior functionaries of the Airport Authority of India (AAI), including Mr Roshan Lal, Executive Director, Cargo, Mr Balbir Singh, Executive Director, Land, Mr K.S. Money, Chairman, APEDA, and Mr Himmat Singh, Managing Director, Punjab Agro Industries Corporation

No move yet to clean up Tung Dhab drain  
Sanjay Bumbroo
Tribune News Service
 
 
The Ajnala Road, leading to the International Rajasansi Airport, passes over the open Tung Dhab drain gives a wrong message to international tourists arriving here. It is also genetically damaging the people living on its banks.  
 
The state government and the Municipal Corporation are still to wake out of their slumber to treat the polluted waters of Tung Dhab drain, which also passes through different parts of the holy city. The women of the adjoining area have suffered the most due to the presence the drain’s high bacteriological content, which had damaged their gene.
 
Mr P.S. Randhawa, General Secretary, Pollution Control Committee Amritsar (PCCA), had written to the Prime Minister, Dr Manmohan Singh in January to make sure that the drain was included in the “River Ravi Action Plan.”  
 
He wrote that Pakistan had on many an occasions pointed out at international fora that India was polluting the river Ravi through effluents from drains such as the one in Hudiara.  
 
The Tung Dhab drain joins with Hudiara drain near the international border.
 
The PCCA General Secretary said that there were various small-scale industries, notably textile processing, woolen cloth dyeing, electroplating, iron foundries, pulp and paper mills in the area. The effluents of industries discharged wastes into the drains— the Gumtala drain ( which carries paper mill, and textile processing mill effluents) and the Verka drain (which carries milk plant, iron foundries and woolen dyeing mill effluents). These drains together fall into the Tung Dhab drain. The drain also receives sewage water from various localities of the city.  
 
Spread over 30,000 sq mts, Mahal village is situated along the right bank of the drain and is inhabited by the people from low socio-economic strata.
 
Mr Randhawa said that a study conducted by the the Human Genetics Department, Guru Nanak Dev University showed that the drain carried largely untreated industrial effluents and sewage from various localities of the holy city. The water of Tung Dhab drain and groundwater of the village was found to be hard, more alkaline and had very high bacteriological contents and higher concentrations of heavy metals like chromium, phosphate, nickel and cadmium, and comparatively lower levels of zinc, magnesium and copper. The results indicated a DNA damage being caused by a chronic exposure to polluted water having heavy metals.  
 
The residents of Mahal had much higher frequency of micro nucleated (MN) cells. A comparison was made between MN cell in different age groups of subjects and controls. There was nearly a linear increase in the MN frequency with increasing duration of stay in the village. Women with more than 10 years of stay in the village had significantly higher frequency than women with a shorter stay there.

Dark side of the road to airport  
Sanjay Bumbroo
Tribune News Service  
 
A serious mishap is waiting to happen on the eight km stretch between the city and the Rajasansi International Airport with the airport-bound traffic using the bumpy roads without any proper lighting.  
 
The state government has only constructed a dual-carriage road and installed a few poles without lighting and without any traffic lights. Danger looms large due to the heavy rush during the night time, as most of the international flights operate from here at 8 p.m. to 8 a.m. About 50 flights operate from the airport to various destinations including London, Canada, Singapore, Dubai, Malaysia, Afghanistan, Slovakia, Birmingham, Uzbekistan and Bangkok.  
 
There is already spurt in crimes in the holy city and the visitors coming from various countries feel insecure due to a total black out on the road to the airport. There is hardly any police party on patrol on the road.  
 
The road connecting the city and the bypass has already taken many lives. There are no proper traffic signals to control the heavy traffic on the crossing connecting the city and the airport near the drain bridge. Even the divider on the road has been left incomplete.  
 
Parking contractors fleece the people by charging hefty sums as there is no board displaying the parking rates. A leading businessman of the city lamented that the hoodlums of the parking contractor were fleecing even the passenger escort vehicles.  
 
A local NGO has decided to take up the matter with the Airport Authority of India to look into the complaints of the passengers using this airport and woefully inadequate facilities.

Hai. I came back from Amritsar on 10 Nov the new arrival terminal is operating well it is not that big as you thing but compare to the old one it is hundred times better it took me about twenty minutes to clear the custom because i was the last person in the row. Then when i came to collect my luggage there are two convayer belts at present of course only one is working for every flight it took me only five to ten minutes to clear my luggage the when i walked out there were two persons who will check your luggage tag to make sure that you collect the right luggage as I walked out there was no wan to stop me supprisingly I walked out without  eny problem even the exray machine at the last entrance was switched off and there was no one there. There is a small duty free shop and there is a flat screen moniter to show the flight information I noticed thet it is very clean and bright there sufficent toilets even for the handicap. But the departure terminal is not ready yet it will still take some time to complete the construction is still in progress as I fly there by Singapore Airlines it was night time about 930 pm. I could not take eny photograph as it was too dark in the night and even when I came back the flight was also at night at 10-30pm at night but I looked around the constrution is still in progress. Thanks.
