Built on a budget of ₹475 crore, the construction began back in 2017. This new terminal building is spanning over a massive area of 51,595 sq m, according to a report by Hindustan Times. It is likely to boost the services and enhance flyers’ experiences by handling about 12 million passengers every year.
