• Aviation Min holds parleys with stakeholders for Budget inputs

    Civil Aviation Ministry today held discussions with stakeholders to seek their suggestions for the Union Budget, days after unveiling the ambitious regional air connectivity scheme.

    The meeting was attended by Civil Aviation Minister Ashok Gajapathi Raju, his deputy Jayant Sinha, Civil Aviation Secretary R N Choubey and other senior ministry officials.

    “We had a meeting with all stakeholders. We asked them to give suggestions keeping our sector’s growth (in mind). They said they will do an exercise among themselves. Then they will come back to us. Whatever suggestions are there we will look at how to take them forward,” Raju told PTI here.

    Speaking on the sidelines of the launch of AAI’s new subsidiary, he emphasised that the government wants to sustain the growth in the aviation sector and also create more jobs. Albert Wilson Jersey
