The aviation ministry is likely to introduce a legislation in the upcoming session of parliament to create a new aviation regulator to replace DGCA. US regulators had recently cut India’s safety rating last as the  present body is largely toothless and has been hobbled by a serious staff shortage. The ministry has accepted recommendations of a panel of MPs to strengthen the proposed Civil Aviation Authority (CAA), by giving it autonomy to create technical posts such as flight operations inspectors without having to turn to the government.

One of the main reasons for the downgrade by the US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) was the failure of the current aviation regulator, directorate general of civil aviation (DGCA) to hire on a permanent basis an adequate number of flight operations inspectors trained for specific aircraft models.
