    According to Jane 360 Article Published on 11 July 2018 India building new Airbase at Deesa to counter PAF new Airbase at Bholari

    Bholari is MOB while Dees will be FOB so very different in concept of operations.

    The upgrade of the existing civilian airport to the control of IAF was approved in 2011. The costs were also approved in 2012. Its just that in typical Indian fashion of bureaucracy, the CCS has given approval in March.
