Corporatisation of Air Navigation Service
Shri Ajit Singh, the Minister of Civil Aviation informed Rajya Sabha today in a written reply that M/s KPMG was engaged to conduct pre-feasibility study for the corporatisation of Airports Authority of India’s Air Navigation Services (ANS) in December 2007, based on the findings of various Committees, which includes Tata Committee (1976), Justice Lahoti Committee (1996), Julka Committee (1997), Naresh Chandra Committee (2003) and the Roy Paul Committee (2006). The Ministry of Civil Aviation had accepted the recommendation of M/S KPMG for hiving of ANS as a separate entity. The key recommendations of the study were:

(i) Consolidate ANS under member (ANS), as part of AAI; and

(ii) Segregate ANS from AAI and establish it as a separate Government of India enterprise. The new ANS entity shall have stringent performance parameters and monitoring mechanism.
