US allows foreign registered air to fly in the country.
At present, an Indian company has to first get the aircraft registered in India, after which the aircraft can be used by it for regular or charter flights. The government plans to remove this requirement as Indian domestic air traffic is growing at the fastest pace globally and it is also promoting regional connectivity in a big way, which will also require additional aircraft.
