The DGCA is conducting a special audit of all airlines and airports which are in monsoon-affected areas in the wake of multiple landing incidents across the country.

Rakesh Gangwal, Co-Promoter of IndiGo, is looking to meet the Prime Minister to request him to help resolve the alleged corporate governance issues plaguing the airline.

This was met with a reply from Co-promoter Rahul Bhatia. The two founders are locked in a public spat over the balance of power in the country's largest airline.

In a statement released earlier this week, Gangwal had questioned IndiGo's corporate governance on related party transactions with IGE.
