A proposal has been brought forward by the authorities of Noida, Greater Noida and YEIDA to purchase three helicopters to use for emergency situations, law enforcement and search and rescue. The proposal has been brought up before, but was not feasible due to financial reasons. “This fresh proposal seems workable,” says Janardan, Additional CEO of GNIDA, as reported by TNN.
As per the proposal, 50% of the three helicopters will be jointly purchased by the three authorities and the remaining 50% of the cost will be supplied by the state government. Each helicopter costs about Rs 100 Crores. These helicopters will be stationed at the Safipur Village Heliport, once construction is complete. The new heliport is still currently underway, being built across a 22 acre area near the Gautam Budh University.
