DGCA issued notice to IndiGo over safety related lapses

Reportedly the regulator carried out surveillance on the airline and found it had not taken corrective steps in the area of training. Meanwhile the safety action group (SAG) was also not in the training department as required by aviation rules. DGCA Director (air safety) Maneesh Kumar said in the notice to IndiGo's Head of Training Sanjiv Bhalla "The corrective action actions taken are inconsistent and not commensurate with the severity of the FOQA (Flight Operations Quality Assurance) events".

Furthermore the DGCA audit focused on the area of occurrence reporting, FOQA monitoring and analysis, implementation of Safety Management System, aircrew training, flight operations and airworthiness and the show cause notice has also been sent to senior airline executives Rakesh Srivastava, Ashim Mitra and Hemant Kumar.

Moreover the DGCA has asked the four airline executives why action should not be taken against them in view of the lapses and violation of the regulatory requirements. It has given 15 days' time to the executives to respond. Apparently InterGlobe Enterprises (IGE), a promoter of IndiGo, on Friday said that Rakesh Gangwal's allegations of "collapsing" corporate governance in the airline are baseless. Recently, the crisis at the country's largest private carrier IndiGo deepened with the dispute between the promoters of the airline turning ugly.
