ET Now: This is a very-very successful launch. It is the first integrated kind. What do you have to say how it is going to help?
Jayant Sinha:
This is really going to be the centre of the helicopter industry in India. You can see that this is a very modern facility. We have invested about 100 crores. It is ideally located. We have national highway right next to us. The metro is going to be at its doorstep and therefore we expect that between thedifferent types of services we can provide, medical evacuation, public safety, tourism, commuting as well as the MRO facilities that are here and the training facilities that we are going to provide, it is going to as a result that be major boost for the helicopter industry in India.

ET Now: You have made a few requests with the Delhi government also in order to facilitate this function at here at Rohini. What are those requests and what kind of response have you got from the Delhi government?

Jayant Sinha:We made three major requests that will enable us to really have this heliport operate at full capacity. Number one, we have said please reduce the aviation turbine fuel taxes which are 25% in Delhi right now, please bring those down that will be very helpful for reducing the prices of helicopter services. Number two, we have asked for some land that is adjoining the heliport because we would like to establish a major training facility for helicopter pilots and third, we have asked that the metro rail be extended here as quickly as possible.
