Cabinet nod for renaming Amritsar airport after 4th Sikh guru

NEW DELHI: The Union Cabinet on Thursday decided to rename Amritsar's Rajasansi International Airport to Sri Guru Ram Dass Jee International Airport.

Guru Ram Dass Jee was the fourth of the 10 Gurus of Sikhs and was the founder of Amritsar. The Airport Authority of India ( AAI ) operates and manages the airport, which is suitable for operations of large aircraft like Boeing 767 and jumbo B747 in all-weather conditions.

The Cabinet decided to provide greater impetus to its commercial ties with Indonesia, by opening a Consulate in Bali. It approved to create four India-based posts, including that of Consul General at the level of a joint secretary, besides six local openings.
