The seven villages identified for the Purandar airport are Khanwadi, Ekhatpur, Kumbharvalan, Pargaon, Munjwadi, Udachiwadi, and Vanpuri. These villages come under the ‘Purandar Upsa Irrigation Scheme.’ The locals are against giving their lands as due to the airport’s work, these villages will be affected.




Gram panchayats of these seven villages have given separate resolutions of opposition to Deputy Chief Minister Fadnavis. The administration is inclined to determine compensation options for the affected, similar to Navi Mumbai or Kochi Airport along with the Samriddhi Highway.
