The project will accommodate 256 dwelling units comprising seven towers of 11 floors
Move to provide land for establishing operational base of Indian Air Force at Charbatia, he says
BHUBANESWAR: Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik laid the foundation for Jal Vayu Towers, a housing project, being developed by Air Force Naval Housing Board (AFNHB), in the presence of Union Minister of State for Defence M. M Pallam Raju here on Tuesday.
The AFNHB is executing the housing project on four acres of land allotted by State government for Defence personnel. The housing project would accommodate 256 dwelling units comprising seven towers of 11 floors. The complex will have adequate parking, modern amenities and robust security facilities.
Addressing the ceremony marking beginning of the project, Mr. Patnaik said, “the defence personnel have won the gratitude of everyone for their patriotism, courage and sacrifice. We are aware of the hazardous situations they confront in discharging their duties. It is a welcome step that the AFNHB is providing affordable dwelling units on no-loss-and-no-profit basis for their serving and retired personnel and also widows.”
“The State government has been supporting various projects and installations of the defence organisation. It has provided 40 acres of land for installation of an MPR Radar in Sambalpur. There is also a move to provide land for establishing an operational base of the Indian Air Force at Charbatia,” he said.
Mr. Raju said an operational base of the Indian Air Force would come up in the State in near future and moreover the State government had agreed to provide land for setting up second Sainik School in the State. He hailed AFNHB's efforts to provide housing to defence personnel.
Rear Admiral Ravi Gaikwad, director general of AFNHB, said the board had again submitted a proposal for securing two acres of land adjacent to the project and 10 acres of land near Chandaka, on outskirt of Bhubaneswar. Air Marshal J N Burma also spoke on the occasion.
