Now understand what is no flying list…

Directorate General of Civil Aviation ie DGCA is a regulatory body of the government, which regulates civil aviation. It mainly investigates aircraft accidents and other incidents. Under provisions 22, 23 and 29 of the Indian Aircraft Rules, 1937, the DGCA can de-board and de-board passengers who are found to have created a ruckus, consumed excessive alcohol or abused aircraft.

Provision 22 states that assaulting or threatening a crew member, whether physically or verbally, would amount to interference with the duty of that crew member. By doing so, the passenger can be prevented from boarding the aircraft. Refusal to comply with security measures in the aircraft also falls in this category.

Provision 23 states that if a passenger under the influence of alcohol or drugs endangers the safety of the plane or any person, he can be taken off the plane.
