Hello fellow weapon lovers,
I request fellow lovers to exhort the DGCA to pass appropriate rules, stopping the blatant robbery by all airlines on the matter of weapon carriage.
It was started when the USD was about 50 INR.
Mindlessly applying the international rate of $100 on domestic carriage, 5,000 Rupees was fixed as weapon carriage charges.
It is acceptable, purely by my standards, to pay 5,000 on a 50,000 Rupee’s ticket.
To charge the same on a Rs. 2,090 ticket is ridiculous, to say the least.
Please take time to visit the website and send email, containing your suggestions, to Lalit Ji for rationalising the fee.
Some more ridiculous changes that are proposed, here.
