Real gem this one...

The DGCA, in keeping with tradition, have dreamed up and implemented this overnight.

According to a mate down on the sub continent, any expat who is employed on flying duties and leaves India, apart from on flying duties, will have to re apply for a security clearance, before recommencing flying duties. 6 weeks minimum I am told.

If you are an expat looking for work in India, look elsewhere I would suggest.

I am home on leave now and supposed to return on the 29th. Have not heard anything from the company or any of the other expats that are in country now. Please give a source for this info so that we can follow up with it.

I have been emailed a copy of the DGCA document. It is possibly on the DGCA website but I haven't looked.

If anyone wants a copy pm me your email address and I will forward the attachment.

If this "gem" is implemented then it will effectively ground 50% or more of the expat Capts here in India because most of us are on ON/OFF contracts of various durations. Either they did not realize this or else they are doing it on purpose to get rid of expats by virtue of red tape. In the end the airlines will be the ones paying because if you are on contract and return from leave, they will have to pay the guarantee monthly amount because you are willing and available to fly. The fact that they can't use you because your security clearance has expired is, well "their problem."
Why doesn't the DGCA and the Govt just say that expats are not welcome here anymore? It would be simpler!! Truly a country of contrasts--Chandrayan to the moon, but............the rest???

The operative word I used was "IF." Nontheless your point is well taken. As Rotor rightly said--post the attachment.

Post the attachment? How? The document is in PDF format. I can post picture format onto PPRuNe but not pdf (via photobucket.)

Any suggestions how I can convert pdf to say jpeg i will oblige. Copy and paste does not work as you are well aware.

Failing that, pm me your email address, assuming you guys have email addresses and I will email said document. This ruling is true as you really couldn't make it up.

No, actually I'm not aware - I just pm'd you the technique.

We all have email addresses. If the option is not available it's because the user doesn't want to get pm's in that fashion.

Sorry if I have done wrong.

All I did was relay information that was post to me from an expat working in India. He is concerned that it will cost him his job.

I posted this on the thread as I thought it may be of interest, as he is not computer literate and doesnt do PPRuNe. I was not aware that I had to succumb to demands of posters how I should or should not confirm this information!

I dictate the terms here, not anyone else. If you want a copy of the said document, you will abide by my terms, go see the DGCA or get !

If you lot are so paranoid as to be too scared to give me your email so I can pass on to you this info via an attachment, then too bad.

Relax guys!!

Im an expat working in India (some days left anyway), and I must say I also saw the document.

I DO NOT have a copy, but its absolutely true. Airlines are fighting against that document, cause they know that a lot of their expat captains will resign under that conditions.

Im not sure if the ruling is in force right now, but be sure it will.

Be prepared for the bad news...as usual!

Regards

Errr, kinda sounds like you WORK for the DGCA, ol' buddy.

Nice. Yup, yup, I'm too scared to give you my email. Fear has always worked well for me.

I never said the doc didn't exist - I just wanted to see it. Somebody will post it eventually. Why you can't or won't is certainly none of my business.

Thank you, my friend. If you get a copy put it up here, willya? I'll do the same.

Time will tell ... never a dull moment.

Thank you. It seems like if you go back for a medical or simulator you're okay; otherwise, you've got to be "rescanned". The letter says the airline has to certify all this at the time your FATA is renewed, so it would SEEM to be necessary "only" once per year. We'll see how this is being interpreted. I can think of multiple issues, but the way the policy just "popped up" would indicate it's being used as an obstacle - leave India at all and you're hosed. Most of us are going to figure it isn't worth the bother, I'm afraid, and that's just what the DGCA wants. Be careful what you wish for ...

I converted the document to .jpg but I can't upload it yet on this *&^%$
low-bandwidth connection ... sorry.
