India's First Ever No Fly List Released By Aviation Ministry

The Centre will release regulations for the much-awaited "no-fly list" on Friday that would incorporate names of passengers declared "unruly" by any airline and names of persons identified as a threat.

Several airlines have been demanding a no-fly list of disruptive passengers following an incident in which Shiv Sena MP Ravindra Gaikwad allegedly hit an Air India staffer with his slipper 25 times over not being given a business class seat in an all-economy plane. The revised Civil Aviation Requirement (CAR) on Unruly Behaviour which seeks to ban passengers for varying periods of time comes into effect from today.

Media reports had speculated that the No-Fly list will ask domestic flyers to provide some form of government identification proof like - Aadhaar, driving licence, passport or Pan number.

"Decision will be taken by an independent committee under a retired district judge within a period of 30 days of alleged offence", he tweeted. This will be punished with a ban of minimum 2 years. The new step has been taken in a bid to ensure safety and check unruly behavior on aircraft, said Pusapati Ashok Gajapathi Raju, the Union Minister for Civil Aviation. The maximum is a three-year curb, which is applicable to passengers who physically assault others inflight, or display equally unworthy behaviour.

The government has issued guidelines for creating a "unique" non-fly list for unruly air passengers and revised the rules to ban such passengers for a period ranging from three months to a lifetime depending on the level of offence. The offender will end up in the list for "two or more years without limit" if he commits a Level 3 offence which is categorised as life-threatening behaviour like murderous assault, choking and damaging aircraft operating system among others. Aggrieved persons may appeal within 60 days from the date of issue of order to the Appellate Committee constituted by the Ministry. Unruly behavior of passengers at airport premises will be dealt with by relevant security agencies under applicable penal provisions.

Aviation regulator Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) will maintain the record of all such blacklisted passengers.

The ban will be doubled in case of repeat offences. Its members will be from different scheduled airlines and passenger associations, consumer associations and retired officials of the Consumer Dispute Redressal Forum.

No Fly List - First of it's kind, any where, the list will have the list of people's names and give the airlines in India the authority to ban people on board. The new rules will apply to foreign carriers as well, the civil aviation ministry said today.
