In this way, finally, one truth has now been established.That is, the DGCA has the least International market value or credibility. Now Proved beyond doubt. An MRO firm carrying a DGCA approval only stands to lose huge international businesses. Was this factor one of the reasons for Air India''s failures? Air India learns this lesson now. In addition to Air India, the DGCA also needs badly some restructuring. However, the irony is: Air India was indeed flying very well while following DGCA. It didn''t need EASA. At one time FAA of the USA had threatened to degrade DGCA. But, the truth has come out now. FAA along with Boeing is today itself struggling with a number of allegations of corrupt practices, while the DGCA seems to be struggling to impress Air India. Please note that a DGCA approval is very much cheaper to get than an EASA approval.
air india should be given to the tatas free of cost alongwith apology letter of having seized it from them
