The Central Vigilance Commission (CVC) is looking into alleged irregularities by some flying schools operating across the country for violating norms and causing a loss of about $ 38 million to the exchequer.
A CVC official said that a complaint was received late last year, alleging that about two dozen non-profit organisations, societies and trusts were operating flying schools and avoiding payment of full fee. After perusing the complaint, the Commission decided to have the matter fully investigated by the Civil Aviation Ministry.
The official said that on the face of it, it would appear that there had been irregularities and the loss to the government could be as much as US 38 million. Sources in the anti-corruption watchdog said that a report will be submitted within 30 days to the Commission.
