Show cause notice issued to Air India: DGCA

Air India

New Delhi: DGCA, the aviation watchdog, has sent Air India a show-cause notice for failing to comply with regulations on the facilities that must be offered to passengers.

Air India was fined ₹10 lakh by the regulator last year for failing to abide by the Civil Aviation Regulation's (CAR) rules regarding passenger denial of boarding.

In order to ensure compliance with passenger-centric CARs, the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) on Tuesday said it has been carrying out inspections of scheduled domestic airlines at various major airports on a continuing basis since May 2023.

"During the inspections of the airlines, it was observed that Air India was not complying with the provisions of the relevant CAR. Accordingly, a show cause notice has been issued to Air India seeking their response for non-compliance to the provisions of the CAR," the DGCA said in a release.

There was no immediate comment from Air India about the show cause notice.

The regulator also said it is imperative to continuously strengthen the rights of the passengers and ensure that the airline operates under harmonised conditions in line with the best global practices.

Domestic air passenger traffic has been rising in India, which is one of the fastest-growing civil aviation markets in the world.
