Fake Pilot License: Need for through Background Screening and Due Diligence
DGCA official Pradeep Kumar, pilot Pradeep Tyagi, Lalit Jain and one other were arrested by the Delhi Police in connection with the fake flying license scam. Further orders were released for a thorough check for all the 40 flying schools in India and also almost 10,000 other pilots were on the radar.
These fake certificates are not just illegal and unfair but also are a threat to human lives and society as the pilots are undertrained and lack ideal knowledge for flying an aircraft.
The case highlights the importance of pre and post background verification.
Background checks and Due Diligence services help in the mitigation and identification of potential risks and red flags, further protecting the company’s interests from any damage. (Source: The Hindu)
