Until now, India didn’t have any such list, allowing everyone with an ID to fly within, to and from the country.

However, aviation minister Jayant Sinha is said to be making India’s own such list, which would have the names of people who misbehave on a plane or do anything that endangers flight safety and fellow passengers. Once on the list, it would be difficult for them to take flights in India.

The list will grade unruly acts committed by flyers, and in return, block them from flying for a period ranging from a few months to a few years.

Earlier, it was only while checking in that passengers had to submit their ID, but with new rules, identity proofs such as Aadhaar number, PAN card, passport or driving licence number etc would need to be procured at the time of booking tickets.
