Bangalore, July 31 (UNI) Karnataka infrastructure Minister G Janardhana Reddy today said that the state government would set up a house committee to 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 substandard work carried out by the consortium if any.

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

"The new airport at Hyderabad is much better and stolen a march over our airport in providing world class amenities to passengers. BIA actually lacks even basic amenities," he alleged.

The Rs 2800-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 holds a stake of 26 per cent for providing nearly 3500 acres of land to the airport. It has also extended a interest free loan of Rs 350 crore.
