New Delhi: The government has set the ball rolling for the complete overhaul of aviation regulator, the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA), to bring it at par with other global regulators.

The Civil Aviation Ministry has constituted a committee headed by former Skill Development Secretary and also Air India ex-chief Rohit Nandan for this purpose.

Members of the panel include former DGCA chief Satender Singh and a representative from global aviation consultancy, the Centre for Asia Pacific Aviation (CAPA). The terms of reference (ToR) for the committee include studying the best practices globally and suggest measures to put a technically strong body in place.

“It was long due. The organization has been in dire need of restructuring. The committee would suggest how best the DGCA can be restructured. It will also suggest how more autonomy could be ensured. It will also look into the financial aspect,” said a person familiar with the development. (IANS)
