Supreme Court to consider Centre’s suggestion of transferable refund vouchers for cancelled flight

The Supreme Court on Friday said it will consider the Centre’s suggestion of making transferable the refund vouchers to be given to the passengers in lieu of the tickets booked for the flights which were cancelled due to the COVID-19 lockdown.

The top court reserved its verdict on a batch of petitions including by NGOs and passengers associations seeking refund of ticket fare for the flights which were cancelled due to the Pandemic. A bench of Justices Ashok Bhushan, R Subhash Reddy and M R Shah was told by Solicitor General Tushar Mehta, appearing for Centre and Director General of Civil Aviation (DGCA), that transferrable refund vouchers can be issued to the passengers, which can be used by the travel agents who had booked their tickets for the flights which were cancelled later.

The bench said, If the travel agents can use the vouchers of the passengers then it is a fair enough suggestion. At the outset, Mehta said that anybody can be a travel agent and the government does not have any control over them as it has no idea about who are registered or who are not registered.
