Flying clubs irregularities: 3 including top DGCA official suspended

A top Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) official and two others were on Friday placed under suspension after a Central Vigilance Commission (CVC) report charged them with showing undue favours to 28 flying clubs.

Taking note of the CVC report of January 27 with regard to irregularities allegedly committed by the officials of DGCA and Airports Authority of India (AAI) in giving benefits to 28 flying clubs across the country, Civil Aviation Minister Ajit Singh directed the AAI to immediately recover the outstanding dues of Rs. 190 crores from various flying clubs by March 31, official sources said.
While ordering the suspension of A.K. Saran, the then Deputy Director General, DGCA and presently Joint Director General, Parveen Kumar, the then Section Officer and D. S. Sada, the then Assistant in DGCA, the Minister said that major penalty proceedings should also be initiated against the three officials immediately. The Minister directed that major penalty proceedings be also initiated against Deepak Raina, the then in charge of the department who has since retired, if permitted under conduct rules, the sources said.
Official sources said that an FIR was also likely to be lodged against the three officials of the aviation regulator, Mr. Raina, and all 28 flying clubs among others named in the report, for criminal conspiracy and causing wrongful pecuniary loss of Rs. 190 crores to the government.
