The incident will also be investigated by the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA).
Second incident in a day
Notably, this is the second time that a plane has returned to Delhi airport because of technical difficulties.

The plane landed safely, has been grounded, and the official has been informed that the DGCA will conduct a thorough investigation into the incident.According to a DGCA official
In a separate development, IndiGo on Wednesday claimed that by providing reduced fares, the elimination of airfare caps will assist airlines in increasing their passenger load factors. Travel agents are hopeful that ticket prices will decrease in the upcoming months as a result of the government eliminating the airfare restrictions after more than two years, particularly due to the impending festival season.
The second-largest airline in the nation, Vistara, declared that it would maintain its balanced pricing policy. When scheduled domestic air services resumed in May 2020, the upper and lower limits on airfares based on flight duration were established. Due to the coronavirus pandemic, scheduled domestic flights were halted beginning in late March 2020 for a period of two months.
The removal of airfare caps as of August 31 was announced by the civil aviation ministry on August 10 in light of the domestic air traffic’s recovery and the relative decline in jet fuel prices. The government’s decision to remove airfare caps is a welcome one, according to a spokesperson for IndiGo, and it will enable airlines to use dynamic pricing on airfares.
“By providing discounted fares on the appropriate sectors and providing reasonable fares, it will also assist airlines in increasing their passenger load factor. Overall, this will enable airlines to continue operating with improved PLFs (Passenger Load Factors) and benefit consumers by enabling airlines to provide reasonable fares “The representative stated.
