Govt unveils no-fly list and rules to handle unruly air passengers

This comes a month after Shiv Sena MP Ravindra Gaikwad thrashed an Air India employee.

Level 1 is disruptive behaviour like physical gestures, abusive language which can lead to suspension for 3 months.

The Centre on Friday released draft rules for a "no-fly list" - a first in India - for unruly passengers.

As per IATA reports, in 2015 there were 10,854 cases of unruly behaviour by passengers across airlines worldwide, which translate into one incident for every 1,205 flights. The second level is for physical abuse - pushing, kicking, sexual harassment and the like - punishable by a 6-month suspension. The third (highest) level is for "life-threatening" behaviour, including damage to aircraft, murderous assault and breach of cockpit security, punishable by a ban on flying for two years or more. "The government is looking into what punishment needs to be given to passengers, but what services should the staff give must also be looked into", Gaikwad told news agency ANI.

Furthermore, under proposed law airlines can constitute a standing panel to look into complaints related to the unruly passenger.

The proposed draft has three levels of offences that can lead to a person being listed on the No Fly List. A formal announcement in this regard was made by Union Civil Aviation Minister Ashok Gajapathi Raju. He said that Civil Aviation would be a great beneficiary of all the steps taken to improve transport and logistics in the country and therefore had great expectations from the Summit. "Gaikwad." He later added: "This incident (Gaikwad episode) did contribute to the thinking (on such a no-fly list)". The punishment for level 2 offences will be six months and that for level 3 offences will be two years or more.

It will be a three-member committee comprising a retired district/sessions judge, representative of a different airline and a member from passengers' association/consumer association/a retired consumer forum official. However, Choubey said that this is still being examined.
