New Delhi: The spat between the Delhi International Airport Pvt Ltd (DIAL) and Delhi Police over building a police station at the IGI airport has finally ended and the task has now been entrusted to the Delhi Police.

The Delhi Police has taken the responsibility to build a station at the airport and also got 3255 square metre land near Terminal-3 from the DIAL.

The proposal has been sent to the Union Home Ministry and after its approval, tenders will be issued within two months.
According to DCP IGI, R A Sanjeev, this will be a model police station where DSP office will also be built.

The contract will be awarded to either L&T or Rites and the building will be constructed within 8-12 months.

Presently, IGI Police Station is functioning in small temporary rooms under flyover near Terminal-2 where there are no arrangements for seating of investigating officers.

The DSP office is currently functioning at the Northern Axis Road which is far away from the airport.

It should be noted that the process was delayed after the Delhi Police considered the station will be built by DIAL and vice-versa.
