Cheaper airfare? SC hearing in July

New Delhi: The wait for cheaper airfares from Delhi is proving to be an unending one.
That matter of tariff revision, which was due to be resolved on May 13, will now be heard in July by the Supreme Court.
SC had asked DIAL, which collects 96% higher charges than the prescribed limit, to end the legal-tussle by May 13. However, the airport appellate tribunal has expressed its inability do so.
The tribunal in its May 2 order had said, "We express the inability to decide all the afore-noted appeals... relating to the fixation of tariff for the first control period, by May 13, 2017." The reasons cited include one of the tribunal members (Justice V K Jain) ending on May 14, and May 13 and 14 being holidays.
