I have a mate who did time in India. The CVR's were pulled on instructions by the DGCA and listened to, on a regular basis.

The the CVR is for accident investigation only, not for spying on pilots IIRC. CVR transcripts have been known to fall into the hands of employers. For a fee no doubt.

The New Zealand police tried this trick also, to prosecute a crew after an accident.

Talk about a load of snakes.

Meanwhile TCAS events keep happening in Indian airspace but they won't bother rectifying those issues....

Incident: KLM B789 and Indigo A320 near Jaipur on Nov 2nd 2016, serious loss of separation

A fish rots from the head down, and in India the 'head' is the DGCA.

In the UK we like to have a laugh by jokingly referring to the CAA as the 'Campaign Against Aviation' but believe me, until you've encountered the knuckle dragging, corrupt and over beaurocratic DGCA in India, you ain't seen nothing.

How the airlines manage there is remarkable with this crowd of idiots constantly thinking up new ways to trip them up.
