NEW: Delhi Airport Development Fee

Allison Sodha

This is to update you that the Government has approved on 9th Feb 09 the levy of Airport Development Fee (ADF) by the Delhi International Airport Limited (DIAL) to charge Rs. 200 for each domestic passenger departing from Delhi and Rs. 1300 for each international passenger (including KTM & Paro), with effect from 1st March for the next three years.

This airport development fee (ADF) is ostensibly being levied to make good the revenue shortfall of Rs 1,827 crore that DIAL is facing in these slowdown times to execute the Rs 8,975-crore project. This is the first instance in India of users part-funding an upcoming airport.

Payment must be made in INR - no USD will be accepted - and the payment is per person, including children and infants. It will be collected at time of departure from the domestic or international airport, respectably.

Let us know if you have any questions.
