A move to fuel a green revamp around the upcoming airport

Five lakh trees will be planted as compensation for the trees cut at the Mopa international airport site."

Notably, the trees will be looked after by the collaborative efforts of the two organisations in the future. Speaking in the Goa legislative assembly, the CM stated that 54,176 trees were cut across parts of the Mopa Plateau earlier this year, for materialising the plans under the airport project.

It is expected that an approximate amount of ₹2.615 crores will be spent for the completion of this project. Further, it has been informed that the first phase of the Mopa International Airport will be commissioned by August 2022.
