    We saw off 2013 with the inauguration of the enhanced Terminal at the rechristened Kempegowda International Airport, Bengaluru and kicked off the New Year 2014 with the inauguration of the stunning Terminal 2 at the Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport, Mumbai. When the Prime Minister of the country and Civil Aviation Minister, and whos who of the corporate world commended our eff orts in executing landmark infrastructure projects, it assured us that we are on the right track. The vision and dream of our Founder Chairman and Managing Director Dr. GVK Reddy has come true.

    Read through to know more about these infrastructural marvels that are set to position GVK as one of the leading airport operators globally, as we present the latest issue of GVK WORLD thats brimming with updates from across our diverse businesses.

    GVKs endeavour to keep Indian art and culture alive through its Jaya He art programme, is captured for your reading pleasure. The enthralling art museum at Mumbais T2 is truly a gateway to Indias incredible diversity. The 3 km long art programme encompasses original art treasures sourced from various regions across the country. Flip in to catch some glimpses of the largest ever public display of Indian art.

    My dream...My dream has been to create icons which will last for generations.From building Hyderabads fi rst luxury hotel to Indias

    fi rst independent power plant to the fi rst six-lane

    expressway, GVK today has created an iconic global

    landmark Terminal 2 at Mumbai, which will make

    every Indian proud.

    My company carries the initials of my name, GVK

    that has long since evolved from an identity given

    to 3 letters that signify: Vision, Perseverance and


    Terminal 2 has been inaugurated by the Honble

    Prime Minister of India Dr. Manmohan Singh

    and there is a widespread appreciation for every

    aspect such as architecture, design, planning and

    implementation. I would personally like to thank

    my partners: ACSA, BidVest, Airports Authority of

    India, design architects SOM, EPC Partner L&T and

    my colleagues who have been part of this journey.

    I appreciate my son, Sanjay Reddy for his passion,

    dedication and tireless hard work in making my dream

    a reality.

    T2 - Raising global benchmarks in aviation


    It was a moment of pride and achievement as we at GVK inaugurated the new

    integrated, state-of-the-art terminal at Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport at

    the hands of Dr. Manmohan Singh, Honble Prime Minister of India in the presence of

    Shri K Sankarnarayanan, Honble Governor of Maharashtra; Shri Prithviraj Chavan, Honble

    Chief Minister of Maharashtra; Shri Ajit Singh, Honble Union Minister for Civil Aviation;

    Shri Sharad Pawar, Honble Union Minister for Agriculture & Food Processing; Shri S Jaipal

    Reddy, Honble Union Minister of Science & Technology and Earth Sciences; Shri Praful

    Patel, Honble Union Minister for Heavy Industries & Public Enterprises; Shri K C Venugopal,

    Honble Minister of State for Civil Aviation, Dr. GVK Reddy, Executive Chairman of GVK

    MIAL; Shri G V Sanjay Reddy, Managing Director of GVK MIAL and other senior dignitaries.

    The impressive, new integrated Terminal 2 is an iconic

    mega-structure (measuring 4.4 mn. .) that will set global

    benchmarks in airport infrastructure development. Featuring

    a highly compact design by New York based SOM, T2 will

    have the ability to handle 40-45 million passengers annually.

    Traversing across four-levels, the vertical and compact design

    of T2 integrating all operations (International, Domestic,

    Cargo, Ground Handling, Security, Retail, etc.) under one

    roof enables enhanced passenger servicing and operational

    effi ciency at GVK CSIA.

    The much awaited inauguration event was attended by over

    5000 guests comprising Central and State policy makers,

    industrialists, celebrities and media. The Prime Minister

    during his inaugural speech lauded GVK for building the

    terminal as Mumbais new gateway. According to him, the

    success of T2 will provide impetus to other PPP projects

    which are under implementation or planning stage. The

    Prime Minister also believed that T2 will establish new global

    benchmarks of functional effi ciencies and operational safety.

    Built at a project cost of Rs. 5,500 crore, T2 is the

    lowest as compared to similar airport projects in

    India as well as across the world. Moreover, T2 has

    been constructed in the same location of the already

    existing international terminal without shutting down

    Indias busiest and land-locked city airport which is the

    most constrained airport in the world.

    The new T2 is home to Indias largest public art

    programme, in the form of a 3 km multi-story Art

    Museum, illuminated by skylights, that has over 7000

    pieces of artwork and artefacts from Maharashtra

    and also every region and corner of India. Titled

    Jaya He (Glory to India), it captures the expanse, depth

    and beauty of Indian art, crast and cultural heritage,


    According to the Executive Chairman, MIAL, Dr. GVK Reddy, The opening of Terminal 2 is one of the most important milestones in the history of GVK CSIA as well as Mumbai. Over the years, we have developed expertise in executing challenging and complex infrastructure projects. Our vision is to be pioneers and best in all the sectors we operate in. We have raised our own benchmarks with every successive endeavour. Terminal 2 reiterates our commitment towards building a better India for the present as well as future generations.

    Dr. Manmohan Singh Prime Minister of India

    I compliment GVK Mumbai International Airport Limited for building this state-of-the-art facility. The entrepreneurial skills of Dr. GVK Reddy and his colleagues are truly fi rst class.

    Shri Praful PatelUnion Minister of Heavy Industry

    and Public Enterprise

    Id like to congratulate Men of the Moment - Dr. GVK Reddy andMr. Sanjay Reddy. Im really delighted to see this magnifi cent public building. It is one of the fi nest and classiest public buildings ever made since independence.
