Yogi Adityanath-led Uttar Pradesh govt plans to develop Jewar Airport as Asia's biggest airport. The state govt has proposed to set aside 2,000 crore for Jewar Airport, Finance Minister Suresh Khanna said Monday while presenting 5,50,270.78 crore budget for 2021-22 in the State Assembly.

The state govt has also increased the number of runways of the Jewar Aiport to six, from two proposed earlier. The UP government presented its first paperless budget in the Uttar Pradesh Assembly today.
