The Ministry of Civil Aviation today released its draft rules for a national no-fly list for unruly passengers travelling by domestic airlines.

This comes in the wake of an incident involving Shiv Sena MP Ravindra Gaikwad who assaulted an Air India staffer following which he was banned by the carrier and subsequently by all national airlines.

The ban was later revoked.

The rules divide unruly behaviour into three categories and recommend a flying ban of 3 months, 6 months and two years or more, without limit.
