The Maharaja must be replaced by the aam admi as the mascot of Indian aviation. Prime Minister Narendra Modi is learnt to have conveyed this to aviation minister P Ashok Gajapathi Raju when the latter briefed him about the critical condition of the debt-laden sector on Saturday.

The PM took notes as the minister and secretary Ashok Lavasa described how the sector was facing existential crisis thanks to its Rs 49,000-crore loans. He keenly heard the required policy initiatives and taxation reforms the sector is hoping from the government to come out of this mess. A lower cost regime, stressed the aviation team, will be able to lead to safe and affordable flying that will lead to the common man becoming the face of aviation — a far cry when flying was only for the Maharajas.
