CAG India said that the Kerala government is responsible for the Delay and Problems for acquiring land for the private airport project at Aranmula, work on which has been halted recently by Chennai bench of National Green Tribunal on environmental grounds.

In its report presented in the Assembly today, the CAG said there was a failure of government machinery right from the lowest revenue officials to the highest level in preventing an individual from illegal acquisition of land, encroachment of government land, filling of paddy fields and transferring part of the same land to the airport company, promoted by Chennai-based KGS Group.

Referring to the present Congress-led UDF Government’s decision in January 2013 to accept the equity offered by the airport company, the report said the government became a party to the illegal filling of land, encroachments, environmental and ecological problems.
It further said the company obtained environmental clearance for the project through false submissions.
