Carriers may not need prior govt nod to import aircraft


Indian carriers may no longer require prior permission to import aircraft as the Civil Aviation Ministry plans to do away with the norm to facilitate ease of doing business.
The move is part of a slew of initiatives taken to improve business conditions in the domestic aviation sector.

The Ministry also expects to soon unveil the much-awaited aviation policy that would help attract more investments into the sector, which is bleeding for years together due to red tapism and over regulations, reports Business Today.

Officials said the Ministry is actively considering to do away with the prior approval requirement for importing aircraft. The idea is to bring down the procedural steps in order to improve the ease of doing business.

At the same time, it would be ensured that security and other key aspects are not compromised, they added. The Ministry has already written to the Commerce and Industry Ministry as well as the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) on the matter, they said.
