Civil Aviation Ministry Says 796 Positions Of Air Traffic Controllers Created In 2 Years

As many as 796 positions of Air Traffic Controllers (ATCOs) have been created at the Airports Authority of India to ensure safe air navigation services in the country, the civil aviation ministry said on Thursday.

    These positions have been created since July 2021. 

    In a release, the ministry said the shortage of ATCOs could have attracted adverse remarks from the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) and could have impacted India's global ranking and passenger safety.

    Besides, 416 new positions have been created in the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) and 10 new posts in the Airports Economic Regulatory Authority (AERA).

    The growth in the aviation sector has also led to the emergence of an urgent requirement of more human resources to effectively respond to the industry's burgeoning demands and enhance the institutional infrastructure, it added.
