Bangalore, Dec 7 (UNI) Road connectivity to the Devanahalli International Airport, near here, would be completed by March 30 next year, the day of the airport's inauguration.

Addressing newspersons after the executive committee meeting today, Karnataka Governor Rameshwar Thakur said there would be no further extension of the deadline for the opening of the airport.

The government would set up a 'reasonable' road connectivity to the airport by that time.

The airport would be inaugurated by Prime Minister Manmohan Singh.

The meeting also discussed the proposals for a high speed rail link between the city and the airport, he said.

Mr Thakur said the Transport and Home Departments were asked to conduct a study on the rail link's impact on city traffic and also its feasibility.

He would meet Delhi Metro Rail Corporation Managing Director E Sreedharan on December 15 in the city in this regard, he said.

The committee had decided to set up a 'single window system' for addressing the grievances of the ex-servicemen, the Governor said.

The new system, to be set up at the district headquarters and the state capital, would be functional in a month, he said.

Special Officers would also be appointed at the department level to monitor the implementation of welfare schemes meant for ex-servicemen, Mr Thakur said.

The executive committee also asked to conduct a study on the proposed railway station to be set up at 40 acres of land belonging to NGEF at Byyappanahalli to decongest the city railway station, he said.

The committee also decided to set up 'Karnataka Municipal Data Corporation' to implement the e-governance scheme in the remaining municipal bodies. The scheme was already implemented in 57 municipal bodies in the first phase, he added.
