Proposal for air connectivity between Jabalpur and Mumbai
New Delhi, Aug 9 (UNI) Minister of commerce and industry Kamal Nath has taken up with civil aviation minister Praful Patel a proposal to provide air connectivity between Jabalpur and Mumbai to give a major boost to tourism and manufacturing sector of the area.
Jabalpur is known as the city of marble rocks situated on the shores of holy river Narmada. The Madhya Pradesh High Court, defence establishments like gun carriage factory, ordnance factory, armoured vehicle factory and other important industries are located there.
''It is already connected by air with Delhi and the connectivity with Mumbai will give a major boost to tourism and manufacturing sector of the area,'' said Mr Nath while forwarding to Mr Patel representation in this regard received from the Mahakaushal Association of Women Entrepreneurs (MAWE) of Jabalpur.
The representation says there is urgent need for air connectivity between Jabalpur and Mumbai in order to facilitate trade and business for the western and southern region, besides bringing benefits to the tourism sector.
This will attract investment into manufacturing and infrastructure of the Mahakaushal region in Madhya Pradesh, the representation adds.
