Privatisation of airports is a welcome move, but a lot more remains to be done

The Airport Authority of India has acres and acres of surplus public land under its control. This is currently lying unused or misused. Initiatives like privatising airports and monetising surplus land assets are encouraged. Privatisation is a policy which should be applied to all other sectors and government departments. And more importantly, the value realised from such privatisation should be returned to people directly, instead of being added to government coffers.
