DGCA imposes Rs 1.10 crore fine on Air India for safety violations

Aviation regulator Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) has slapped Air India with Rs 1.10 crore for safety violations amid a series of incidents of flight irregularities.

"Pursuant to the receipt of a voluntary safety report from an airline employee alleging safety violations of flights operated by Air India on certain long range terrain critical routes, DGCA conducted a comprehensive investigation into the alleged violations,” the regulator said in a statement.

Investigation on Air India

DGCA had issued a show-cause notice to the airline, since the investigation prima facie revealed non-compliance by the airline. The DGCA statement also mentioned that the notice was duly examined with respect to the laid down stipulations.

“Since the investigation prima facie revealed non-compliance by the airline, a show cause notice was issued to the accountable manager of Air India Limited. The response to the show cause notice was duly examined with respect to the laid down stipulations under the relevant statutory provisions and the performance limits stipulated in critical documentations laid down by the Original Equipment Manufacturer [OEM],” the DGCA statement read.

Recently, Indigo was also fined Rs 1.20 crore as the passengers of one of its flights came out on the tarmac and started eating food. Union Minister Jyotiraditya Scindia strongly reacted to the incident and said it was unacceptable.
