UDAN 3.0 results will be announced on 25/01/2019 at 5 PM in presence of Hon’ble Minister, Civil Aviation in New Delhi.
The government has received bids for 111 proposals which include operations of seaplanes in the third round of auction for the regional air connectivity UDAN 3 scheme from 15 airlines.
With regards to Belagavi 17 routes have got Financial Bids but Bengaluru, Mumbai, and Chennai are missing from the list which is disheartening.
Under the scheme, 50 percent seats in aeroplanes are offered at concessional rates to passengers.
In case of these seats remaining vacant, the Centre and the respective state offer subsidy in the form of Value Gap Funding (VGF) to the airline company to compensate for the loss.
As part of this scheme, no other airline is allowed to operate that particular route, thus protecting the business interest of the operating company.
The VGF in tickets is shared by the Centre (80 per cent) and the state (20 per cent).
