Fine imposed on Air India

DGCA has imposed a fine of Rs 1.10 crore on Tata Group company Air India. An employee of the company itself had accused Air India of ignoring the rules related to safety in long routes flights. After this, aviation sector regulator DGCA investigated against Air India.

DGCA conducted a comprehensive investigation into the allegations and prima facie found that Air India had committed negligence in following the rules. After this, DGCA issued a ‘show cause’ notice to Air India. DGCA has imposed a fine of Rs 1.10 crore on Air India after not receiving a satisfactory reply from the company.

There was a complaint last year

A former Air India pilot had informed the Civil Aviation Ministry and DGCA about ignoring the rules in October last year. Only after this was this investigation conducted against Air India.

Recently, a fine of Rs 1.20 crore has also been imposed on the country’s largest airline Indigo. The passengers of a company flight had come to the runway and started eating food there. Civil Aviation Minister Jyotiraditya Scindia had also expressed strong displeasure over this development. He called it intolerable under any circumstances.
