No major announcement for civil aviation in Union Budget 2019

In one of the most people-centric budgets ever presented, with sops for farmers, the unemployed and the middle class, no announcement was made for the civil aviation sector. While the only mention by Finance Minister Piyush Goyal was about UDAN scheme, no figure was divulged on the number of people who have benefited from it.

“Because of ‘UDAN Scheme’, today an ordinary citizen is also travelling by air. Domestic passenger traffic has doubled during the last five years leading to large number of jobs being created also,” said Goyal.

He mentioned Pakyong airport in Sikkim which is the 100th airport. He made a vague statement that there were now more than a hundred airports in the country.
