Civil Aviation Minister Suresh Prabhu has asked aviation watchdog DGCA to undertake safety assessment of Boeing 737 MAX planes operated by domestic airlines.
Besides, the regulator is undertaking a detailed technical evaluation and consulting with safety regulators around the world.
The latest moves come a day after a 737 MAX aircraft, operated by Ethiopian Airlines, crashed killing 157 people.
Jet Airways and SpiceJet have 737 MAX aircraft in their fleet.
In a tweet on Monday, Prabhu said he has directed officials of the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) to undertake “safety assessment” of Boeing 737-MAX planes being flown by domestic carriers.
