Action to be taken against government officials involved in fake Commercial Pilot License scam




 The Central Vigilance Commission (CVC) has directed the ministry of civil aviation to fix responsibility of officials of Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) and Airports Authority of India in the matter about irregularities in flying schools. The decision was based on the investigation report submitted by the official who held the additional charge as the chief vigilance officer of the DGCA last year.

Last year, the DGCA unearthed several cases wherein trainee pilots (who were Commercial Pilot License (CPL) aspirants) had done fraudulent logging of flying hours or had submitted fake marksheets when applying for a pilot license.

Cases were filed against the accused students and flying instructors, but there was hardly any action taken against DGCA officials who were also found to be involved in the fraud. `` The observations of the CVC in the matter was examined, it was decided to initiate disciplinary proceedings against the three officials alleged to have been involved,'' said a release issued by the ministry of civil aviation on Saturday. The ministry has also sought permission from the CVC for further investigations in the matter.
