Kochi airport T3 ..

The swanky new 15 lakh sq ft Terminal 3 of the world's first and ONLY 100% energy-neutral solar powered International airport at Kochi, Kerala was completed in 2016 at a cost INR 1000 crores ($150 million)

The 58 lakh sqft terminal 3 of the IG international airport in Delhi was completed in 2008 at a cost of INR 13,000 crores. ($2 billion) ..

Delhi IGI airport T3 is only 3.8x larger in area, but is 13x, thirteen times cost of Kochi International airport T3, 

Kochi T3 was built after clean 8 years .. (forgetting devaluation of rupee over 8 years) ..

Are our big projects under careful financial scrutiny ? Was the IGI project a waste of money ?

Point to ponder !
