The verdict on this Yojana
The scheme was first drafted back in the month of July by the civil aviation ministry. It came out officially in the month of October 2016. According to the ministry this scheme will be helpful for those common citizens who have to travel frequently for commercial purposes. As people know that flights take less time than any other transportation but fares are much more than trains or road transport so the ministry has decided to cap it at fixed level.
On the other some of the private airlines companies voiced against it. According to them the price can be an obstacle for the profit level. Though the 50% of the seats will be available at market price still they are not happy with the decision.
