The domestic as well as international flights from Delhi will now be cheaper. As the aviation regulatory body is slashing the user development fee (UDF). The news was released by the Directorate General of Civil Aviation.

Passengers departing from Indira Gandhi International airport will now have to pay a UDF of ₹10 on domestic flights which was earlier in the range of ₹275 – ₹550. While the international flight passengers have to pay ₹45 instead of previous ₹635 – ₹1,270. But the flights landing in Delhi will now be free from paying UDF which would result in the savings of ₹233-466 for the former and ₹518- ₹1,048 for the latter.

Significantly, Delhi International Airport Limited (DIAL), the joint venture company which operates IGIA, had sought 42.6% hike in airport charges.

In December 2015, the Airports Economic Regulatory Authority have tried for the cut of UDF, but Delhi airport operator filed a complaint in the court. This matter was further challenged in the Supreme Court. But on July 3, the Supreme court vacated a stay granted by the Delhi high court and announced the implementation of revised tariffs.
