Kochi (Kerala) [India], July 4 (ANI): The Cochin International Airport Limited rolled out 'Operation Pravaah', a multifaceted infrastructure programme scoping to integrate flood mitigation projects already initiated by CIAL with District Administration and various local self governments.
CIAL Managing Director S Suhas IAS announced the programme while attending a review meeting held at Kochi Airport on Sunday.
CIAL is spending around Rs 130 crores for comprehensive flood mitigation activities.
Phase 1 of Operation Pravaah will be completed in the last week of July, while the second phase incorporates major construction activities including the construction of a regulator-cum-bridge (RCB) on the mouth of the Chengal Canal for Rs 20.40 crores.
