The Civil Aviation Minister mentioned that, starting in 2014, the count of airports in India has increased from 74 to 149, and the number of passengers has grown from 6 crore to nearly 14.5 crore.

Aviation is growing rapidly in India, and by the end of this year, Delhi Airport is expected to become the second-largest airport in the world, according to Civil Aviation Minister Jyotiraditya Scindia.

In an interview with NDTV, Mr. Scindia mentioned that India's aviation infrastructure has expanded rapidly during Prime Minister Narendra Modi's tenure. He explained that Delhi Airport, which currently handles 70 million passengers, is expected to handle 109 million passengers by December. This would make Delhi Airport one of the world's largest, possibly second only to Atlanta in scale.

Throughput capacity, in this case, refers to the number of passengers that an airport can handle in a year. 

The minister said the Jewar airport will be inaugurated in the next 12 months and its capacity will grow to 60 million by 2030. So, between Jewar and Delhi, there will be a throughput capacity of 160 million.
