36 Affordable flying

On April 27, 2017, Prime Minister Narendra Modi launched the RCS scheme in Shimla to boost air travel between smaller cities by making flights far more affordable for “tier 2″ and smaller towns. “I want to see people who wear hawai chappal (flip flops) in a hawai jahaz (airplane),” Mr Modi said. That was the first round of bidding under Regional Connectivity Scheme (RCS) named as UDAN (Ude Desh ka Aam Naagrik), which is operational now.
