Noida will soon have a state-of-the-art indoor shooting range at Noida Stadium in Sector 23A.

Noida Authority said the project, being developed at an estimated cost of Rs 11 crore, will be completed within a year.

The 2,000-sqm facility will cater to the 10mm air rifle, the 25mm pistol and the 50mm rifle. Once completed, this will be the first modern shooting range in Uttar Pradesh.

President of UP State Rifle Association, Shyam Singh Yadav, is more than happy with the news.

"The new shooting range will be a great advantage to young sportspersons from Noida and Ghaziabad," he said. "Once functional, these youngsters won't have to travel all the way to Delhi, Haryana or Chandigarh any more."

SC Mishra, project engineer, Noida Authority, said that the shooting range will be in line with international standards and in the same league as American and European ranges.

The facility will have two floors, where 40 shooters can practise at a time. International championships can also be hosted at the range. Young enthusiasts can train at the planned shooting academy within the facility.
