October 14: Ajit Singh, Aviation Minister and President of Rashtriya Lok Dal, says people had lost confidence in India's aviation story, when Jet, Kingfisher and Air India were all in severe financial duress. However, the government is clearing bottlenecks surrounding DGCA, FAA, etc., and the Civil Aviation Authority Bill will be taken up in the next session. He admits the inability to solve ATF taxation issues as state governments hadn’t agreed on the concessions.
