Airlines company Air India has been fined a sum of ₹ 10 lakh by aviation regulator DGCA, for denying boarding to passengers holding valid tickets and thereafter not providing mandatory compensation to them.

The DGCA (Directorate General of Civil Aviation) in a statement said-
“DGCA carried out a series of checks, and during our surveillance at Bengaluru, Hyderabad, and Delhi, there were specific instances, in the case of Air India; where the regulation is not being followed and therefore, a show-cause notice was issued to the airline and also a personal hearing was afforded.”

Air India has been advised to immediately resolve the issue and not being able to solve it will force DGCA to take further action.
The action has been taken considering reports of various flyers denied to get on board by a slew of airlines despite having valid tickets and arriving on time.
