Even weeks after the Center confirming the name of the domestic terminal of Shamshabad Airport after legendary actor and former Andhra Pradesh chief minister late N.T. Rama Rao, the signage and other initiatives are yet to come up at the airport. The authorities have already received the orders about the name change from the Union Civil Aviation Ministry but the implementation seem to be taking more time than expected.
When quizzed about the delay, the authorities say the work is underway. It is known that the Telangana state assembly has moved a resolution opposing the name change but center did not care to take in to consideration.
The old Hyderabad airport at Begumpet used to have two terminals. The international one was named after Rajiv Gandhi and the domestic one after NTR. After Begumpet airport was closed for commercial traffic and Shamshabad is opened, only Rajiv Gandhi’s name was given to both the terminals.
