Delhi: HC asks airport authority to explain why it wants some airlines to move to Terminal 2

IndiGo had filed a plea challenging the decision and calling it arbitrary.

The Delhi High Court on Wednesday asked Delhi airport authorities to submit their internal report to show their rationale behind shifting the operations of some airlines to Terminal 2, ANI reported. The Delhi International Airport Limited had told the court that its decision to move some operations to the refurbished Terminal 2 was based on an internal assessment.

The court said it needs to check whether the assessment was irrational and arbitrary.

The court was hearing a plea by private aviation operator IndiGo, challenging the decision. IndiGo and SpiceJet have until January 4 to move some of their flights to the terminal. Around a third of the flights that currently operate from Terminal 1 have been asked to shift to Terminal 2. GoAir has already moved all its flights to the terminal, which began operations on October 28.

In its petition, IndiGo said, “The restrictions sought to be imposed by DIAL could destroy IndiGo’s business, the reputation of which has been built over the past 11 years. DIAL’s directions are completely arbitrary and do not have any nexus with the object sought to be achieved: decongestion.”

Before being refurbished, Terminal 2 had been barely utilised – it was used for around three months a year to operate Haj pilgrimage flights.

If YOLO is your mantra, get ready to live it the right way

So much to do, so little time!

Carpe Diem! We are a part of the generation that truly knows how to live by those words. We understand the value of everyday and believe that life should be lived in the moment. We fear nothing, except maybe the fear of missing out. We live for an adrenalin rush that keeps us young and makes us feel alive. And what makes this spirit more powerful is that it has captured our collective pulse and has created a refreshed way of life.

Planning for the future has never been our forte, our strength lies more in fuelling our wanderlust and collecting memorable experiences. We love our independence, our freedom of expression and thrive on an ambition of pursuing many passions. How do we keep this spirit alive without letting the rigours of life weigh it down? Maybe it’s time we take a break from seizing the day and pause to look ahead.

Start by making a simple vision board and include all that you want your life to be. Do you dream of sailing across the world or sharing your ideas through your own YouTube channel? Do you see yourself travelling the entire world as a blogger or starting your own café frequented by artists and musicians? Whatever life goals you put down on your vision board can be achieved with determination, passion and a little bit of planning.

Five years ago, IDFC Mutual Fund initiated the conversation on planning in advance for what you might need in the future through the movie ‘One Idiot’. The protagonist of the movie “Bugs Uncle”, enlightened many young Indians about the importance of planning their lives and finances.

Bugs Uncle has returned to once again share his wisdom with the youth and provide a fresh perspective on life. The movie ‘Return of One Idiot’ - an Amole Gupte film and an IDFC MF initiative, shows us how, if we don’t pause for a moment and care to define our future, it’ll lead us down a road none of us wants to visit. And while it’s completely understandable something so far away is tough to think about now, it’s something we shouldn’t neglect either. Watch Bugs Bhargava give you his insights on life in the video below.
