CVC probing flying schools fraud
New Delhi: The Central Vigilance Commission
(CVC) is looking into alleged irregularities by some flying
schools operational across the country for violating norms and
causing a loss of about Rs 190 crore to the exchequer.
Sources said these flying schools allegedly acted as
non-profit organisations and trusts with no financial gains
and avoided payments of full fee of their operations.
They said the anti-corruption watchdog has written to
Ministry of Civil Aviation to get the matter investigated and
submit its report.
"A complaint was received late last year. The complainant
has alleged that about two dozen non-profit organisations,
societies and trusts were operating flying schools and
avoiding payment of full fee. After perusing the complaint,
the Commission decided to get the matter thoroughly
investigated," a senior CVC official said.
According to the official, the matter is now being looked
into by the Chief Vigilance Officer of the Civil Aviation
As per norms, non-profit organisations are given
concession on payment of fee to the government.
"Prima facie, it appears that there have been
irregularities and a probe was needed. As per the complaint,
there appeared to be a loss of about Rs 190 crore to the
government," the official said.
Sources in the anti-corruption watchdog said that the
investigation in the matter will be done by CVO of the Civil
Aviation Ministry and a report will be submitted within 30
days to the Commission.
