New Delhi: Passengers departing on international and domestic flights from the Indira Gandhi International Airport will have to pay a User Development Fee (UDF) of Rs1300 and Rs200 per head respectively from 1 March, the Lok Sabha was informed on Thursday.
Passengers will have to pay the UDF for a period of 36 months to bridge the funding gap of Rs1827 crore, civil aviation minister Praful Patel said in a written reply.
“Funds collected through the levy can be utilised only for the construction of such aeronautical assets which will be transferred by DIAL (Delhi International Airport Limited) to AAI upon completion of lease period,” Patel said.
