Avi­a­tion (DGCA) has slashed User De­vel­op­ment Fee (UDF) for do­mes­tic and in­ter­na­tional pas­sen­gers fly­ing out of Delhi’s Indira Gandhi In­ter­na­tional Air­port. On July 18, the DGCA an­nounced that UDF for do­mes­tic pas­sen­gers has re­duced to `10 from `275-`550, and to `45 from `635-`1,270 for in­ter­na­tional pas­sen­gers.

UDF is in­cluded in the air fare at the time of pur­chas­ing tick­ets.

All pas­sen­gers fly­ing out of IGI, post July 7, can re­quest for a re­fund of “ex­cess UDF col­lected” by air­lines. Do­mes­tic pas­sen­gers must make the claim, against their ticket copy, within 45 days from July 18, and in­ter­na­tional pas­sen­gers have 60 days to claim the re­fund.

The no­tice goes on to state:“Af­ter the due date, the bal­ance un­claimed amount, duly ver­i­fied by char­tered ac­coun­tant, may be re­mit­ted to DIAL (Delhi In­ter­na­tional Air­port) by air­lines, which shall be ad­justed while de­ter­min­ing the aero­nau­ti­cal tar­iff of IGI Air­port for the next con­trol pe­riod. Fur­ther, in re­spect of the pas­sen­gers who booked the ticket on or be­fore 07.07.2017 but are yet to com­mence the travel, Air­lines shall re­fund the ex­cess amount, if any, to the pas­sen­gers with­out wait­ing for such claim from the pas­sen­ger.”newdel­hi­air­
