Cheaper flights? Government to set up Tariff Monitoring Unit to monitor airfare

By Newsgram Staff Writer

New Delhi: Taking a step toward regulating the airfares, Centre has decided to set up a tariff monitoring unit.

Informing Rajya Sabha through a written reply, Civil Aviation minister, Mahesh Sharma made public the setting up of a Tariff Monitoring Unit by the Directorate General civil Aviation (DGCA).

The unit has been formed to ensure that airlines do not charge airfares outside the range declared by them.

Although an analysis has shown that airfares remain well within the range provided by airlines on their websites, the government has decided to monitor the fare nonetheless.

Previously airfares were not regulated by the government.
