63 passengers have been placed on the "no-fly list" due to their unruly behavior while on board the aircraft. The No Fly List is maintained by the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) and contains information about the passengers, their identity details and the duration of the ban imposed on them.

Civil Aviation Requirements (CAR), Section 3 - Air Transport, Series M, and Part VI titled "Handling Unruly/Disruptive Passengers", the airline's internal committee is responsible for recommending passengers to be placed on the no fly list.

Reason Behind Placement on the No-Fly List

Most passengers who have been placed on the no-fly list in the past year were for flouting rules such as not wearing masks or disobeying instructions from crew members.

However, there have also been two incidents of urination which have been reported to the DGCA.
