DGCA directs airlines to spread awareness on SBM


The next time you board an aircraft, do not be surprised on hearing in-flight announcements asking you to contribute for building toilets or on being shown a video on cleanliness drives.

The directorate general of civil aviation (DGCA) has directed Indian carriers to spread awareness on the government’s Swachh Bharat Abhiyan through in-flight announcements and boarding cards. Airlines have been asked to seek donations from flyers and spread the word on their websites, reports Economic Times.

DGCA joint DG Lalit Gupta wrote to airlines last Friday, saying that regulator had proposed a series of steps. The regulator also asked airlines to adopt villages colonies for construction of toilets and develop a system of cleanliness.
