New Delhi: The Delhi High Court has asked the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) and the Ministry of Civil Aviation to consider as a representation of the plea seeking investigation to ascertain the presence of ‘optional safety features’ in planes and to also frame guidelines on this. A Division Bench, comprising Chief Justice D.N. Patel and Justice C Harishankar, while disposing of the petition, asked the DGCA and Civil Aviation Ministry to decide on it after giving a personal hearing to the petitioner.

The petition, filed by lawyer Yugansh Mittal, sought directions for setting up a panel to investigate the presence of ‘optional safety features’ in planes, and framing of guidelines regulating the practice. It also prayed for directions to collect data on optional safety features, their availability, and cost, and to make optional safety features mandatory for all aircraft operating in India. (IANS)
