About two weeks after the DGCA said it had taken cognisance of concerns raised against a 'particular airline' in connection to the controversy around AirAsia India pilot Gaurav Taneja, the aviation industry regulator sent a show-cause notice to the carrier's senior executive.

Sources close to the regulator confirmed to Moneycontrol that the DGCA had sent a notice to Manish Uppal, AirAsia India's Head of Operations.

“AirAsia India confirms receipt of the notice and we are assisting the regulator in its fact finding process. We will fully cooperate with the regulator," an AirAsia India spokesperson told Moneycontrol.

In a June 15 statement on Twitter, DGCA said it had "taken note of the concerns raised by some stakeholders against a particular Airline and its approach to safety”.
