Civil aviation policy to get Cabinet’s approval by March end

New Delhi: The national civil aviation policy, which proposes various tax sops and setting up of no-frills airports, is likely to get Cabinet approval by this month, a top official said today.

“We are hopeful of getting Cabinet approval to the policy by the end of this month,” Civil Aviation Secretary R N Choubey said here.

The ministry had earlier planned to take the draft policy, which was unveiled on October 30 last year, to the Cabinet for its approval by January.
“We wish it takes less time but it is largely because of the comments received by diverse stakeholders (in response to the draft document),” the secretary said.

Choubey said the Government was “taking time” in finalising the policy and its subsequent implementation.
