Mum­bai: The Bureau of Civil Avi­a­tion Se­cu­rity (BCAS) has sus­pended the li­cence of In­diGo's avi­a­tion se­cu­rity train­ing cen­tre for al­legedly fudg­ing and leak­ing ques­tion pa­pers dur­ing se­cu­rity train­ing tests to its cabin crew.

As a re­sult of these al­leged prac­tices, the en­tire crew scored more than 90% marks, said Ra­jesh Kumar, the bureau’s di­rec­tor-gen­eral. The ‘il­le­gal prac­tices’ had been go­ing on for 7-8 months, he added. Ac­cord­ing to rules, air­lines have to im­part train­ing to their crew un­der a mod­ule ap­proved by BCAS. “We are al­ready in con­tact with the BCAS and are con­fi­dent of demon­strat­ing suf­fi­cient com­pli­ance to the sat­is­fac­tion of the BCAS,” said an In­diGo spokesman. “We would like to clar­ify that this dis­cus­sion only per­tains to the avi­a­tion se­cu­rity train­ing. All other train­ings are con­tin­u­ing as sched­uled and there has been no change in our op­er­a­tions as re­ported by a sec­tion of the me­dia,” he added.
