Bangalore, Jul 31 (UNI) Karnataka Infrastructure Minister G Janardhana Reddy today said the State Government would order a House Committee probe into the violation of terms and conditions by the consortium which developed the greenfield Bengaluru International Airport at Devanahalli near the city.

Replying to a debate under Rule 69 raised by Congress member D K Shivakumar, he said the Committee would inquire into the sub-standard work carried out by the consortium, if any.

The Congress member had alleged that the BIA lacked passenger amenities and even basic amenities in the warhousing block.

''The new airport at Hyderabad is much better and has stolen a march over our airport in providing world class amenities to passengers.

BIA actually lacks even basic amenities,'' he alleged.

The Rs 2,800 crore airport, which began operations early this year, was built by the consortium of Zurich International Airports Ltd, L and T and Siemens.

The State Government held a stake of 26 per cent for providing nearly 3,500 acres of land to the airport. It had also extended an interest-free loan of Rs 350 crore.
