The Central government is planning to construct a new airport at Neemrana in Rajasthan, situated halfway between Delhi and Jaipur. The new airport would decongest the increasingly crowded Indira Gandhi International (IGI) airport at New Delhi and will cover an area of 24sqkm. It is expected to become a gateway for tourism in Rajasthan and fuel expansion and growth in this area. The Delhi-Mumbai Industrial Corridor Development Corporation (DMICDC), which is executing the project in collaboration with the Rajasthan government, will carry out a feasibility study on the effect of the new airport on the IGI airport. The DMICDC is also developing a township near Neemrana along the 1,483 km industrial corridor that it is building between Delhi and Mumbai. Six other townships will be developed along the corridor.
