• MoCA moves aviation policy for inter-ministerial consultations

    After months of discussions with various stakeholders, the Ministry of Civil Aviation has put up the revised draft aviation policy for inter-ministerial consultations.
    The development is a step forward in finalising the new civil aviation policy, whose draft was unveiled by the Ministry back in October 2015.
    To tap the high growth potential of the countrys aviation space, the proposed policy has suggested a slew of measures including strengthening regional connectivity and tax incentives for airlines.
    A senior official said the Ministry moved the draft Cabinet note on new civil aviation policy for inter-ministerial consultations last Friday.
    Without providing any specific details, the official said comments on the policy are expected from various ministries, including Defence and Home, in a couple of weeks. After receiving the responses, the Ministry would move the Cabinet for final approval, he said.
