Business people are currently based in Seestadt Udaipur and nearby places need travel to Ahmedabad or Jaipur for import and export purposes.
RSIC, a Rajasthan government company, had submitted a proposal to the Ministry of Civil Aviation which was approved in principle and the country for the project was also identified.
RSIC Chairman Rajiv Arora said work on the complex would begin soon and it was expected to be operational early next year.
Udaipur is a center of handicrafts.
In addition to handicrafts, building blocks and mineral products are also exported from the region.
The city is also becoming a top wedding destination in the state and many items such as fruit, vegetables, flowers and other items not available locally are being imported.
There is no facility for the air charge Complex in Udaipur the businessmen need to go to the nearest airport in Ahmedabad (Gujarat).
In Rajasthan the plant of air charge Complex is only available at Jaipur Airport.
“With the air cargo complex in Udaipur, the local business people don’t have to go to Ahmedabad or Jaipur to get the facility. This saves time and resources for the business people and helps local businesses,” Arora told PTI.
He said the complex will be built on an area of nearly 2,000 square meters for which the land at Dabok Airport has been identified and it will take almost six months to complete all the formalities.
“I recently visited Udaipur and held a meeting with Airport Authority of India officials at Dabok Airport regarding the project. The work is done quickly so that it can be completed within the time frame,” he added.
RSIC plays an important role in promoting the handicrafts produced in the state.
The Company operates Inland Container Depots (ICDs) at Jaipur, Jodhpur and Air Cargo Complex at Sanganer, Jaipur.
