Say what? Yep, Indian Airlines will now be fined up to ₹50,000 if airlines are emptying their toilets during landing or take off.
What Is It?
The Directorate General Of Civil Aviation (DGCA) has issued a final warning for Indian airlines for emptying their toilet tanks during take off or landing. From 30th August onwards, National Green Tribunal (NGT) will be slashing salaries of Indian Airline officials if this rule isn’t implemented properly.
A penalty of ₹50,000 will be issued against the airline if poop is dropped mid-air during take off or landing. This penalty will clearly be cut from the employees of the airlines. This penalty of ₹50,000 will be given as an environmental compensation.
