Project

In the meeting, Asthana explained to Sinha that a change at this minute will badly hit the project, which was in the planning stages for more than three decades, considering the city's development agency has already shortlisted consortia, obtained the requisite clearances and the central government's commitment to fund 20 per cent of the project cost.

Chief Minister Prithviraj Chavan had also written to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh about the issue, saying it would be difficult to consider JNPT's request at this stage.
