Maharashtra seaplane plan grounded

MUMBAI
SEAPLANE_mahaWith Sahara India chief Subrata Roy behind bars, the country’s first seaplane service from the megapolis to Aamby Valley City, which is run by the Sahara group, has been put off.

The decision came after the Sahara group requested the operator Mehair to delay the launch following the arrest of Roy, who is now in Delhi’s Tihar Jail after he failed to follow the Supreme Court’s order to pay up ₹24,000 crore to market watchdog Sebi.

“We have received a communication from Aamby Valley officials to delay the commercial launch due to the recent developments,” Maritime Energy Heli Air Services or Mehair co-founder and director Siddharth Verma told PTI here today. The Maharashtra Tourism Development Corporation had roped in Mehair to launch the country’s first seaplane service between Mumbai and Aamby Valley near Lonavala, about 120 km from here. Accordingly, the company had tied up with Aamby Valley for the

service.
