[TNPSC Geography Study Materials] UDAN Scheme

UDAN - Ude Desh ka Aam Nagrik (Common Man should fly)
It is the central govt's regional air connectivity scheme to connect the country's underserved and unserved airport.
Underserved and Unserved airports
  • Underserved - airports which do no have more than one flight a day
  • Unserved - airports which do no have operations
  • Under this Scheme the fare will be capped to Rs 2500 for flight journey less than 1 hr and 500 kms.
  • The losses incurred by the flight operators will be provided by the Viability gap funding and other tax concessions.
  • In order to fund the Viability gap funding a regional connectivity fund will be created which will get fund from RCF levy charged from certain domestic flights.
  • The centre and state share - 80:20.
  • Aims to increase passengers from 80 million to 300 million by 2022. 
  • Subsidy will be provided for the selected route for a period of 3 years.
  • The airticket fares under this scheme will be revised quarterly (once in 3 months).
Udan scheme will help the potential remote airports to revive. It will also reduce the travel time to the remote areas in the country.
