Mumbai: The Directorate-General of Civil
Aviation (DGCA) is looking into the issue of fake pilot
licences, Air India Chairman Arvind Jadhav, on Wednesday said that.

"The DGCA is looking into the matter," Jadhav told
reporters on sidelines of an aviation event here.

Air India has reportedly de-rostered a pilot for
allegedly submitting a forged marksheet to get his licence.

Besides, some pilots of private air-carriers have also
had action taken against them and the aviation sector
regulator, DGCA, is now conducting a probe into the matter.

It is reported that some officials of DGCA, past and
present, are under the scanner in this matter.

The police are also investigating the matter.
