Two local industry bodies have requested the Jharkhand Government to provide land to Tata Steel for building an airport in Jamshedpur.
In a joint meeting in Jamshedpur on Sunday, the Singhbhum Chamber of Commerce and Industry and the Adityapur Small Industries Association expressed anguish over the delay in providing the land and decided to launch a campaign soon.
