Member of Parliament in the Lok Sabha from Chikkodi Constituency, Annasaheb Jolle has demanded the Civil Aviation minister Jyotiraditya Scindia to include Belagavi Airport in the ‘Krishi Udan’ Scheme.

Civil Aviation Minister Jyotiraditya Scindia responded positively to the demand of MP and assured that, Belagavi Airport will be considered to implement the scheme.

Minister also said that, Currently the Krishi UDAN 2.0 will be implemented at 53 airports across the country and is likely to benefit farmers, freight forwarders and airlines. The ministry of civil aviation plans to be pilot the scheme for 6 months, and, will introduce amendments based on the results of the evaluation & consultations with other stakeholders.

The agriculture sector is undergoing drastic changes and the produce is increasing rapidly. However, the farmer suffer heavy losses due to unavailability of proper transportation and hence, they are not getting the proper compensation for their produce. There is a need that the agriculture produce should reach the market through air service. As a result, the agriculture produce from Belagavi region will reach various markets in the country in less time, said Annasab Jolle.
