The deadline for sending the expat pilots back has been extended by DGCA. Previously it was 30th July this year, and now DGCA has extended to next year.
Many airlines quoted that there carrier will be severely affected if the date will not be extended. The problem of unemployment of pilots will only be solved when the current co-pilots in airlines gets upgraded to commanders,which will take a long time. After only the airlines will start recruiting 3500 unemployed pilots.
