New Delhi: Another scam in the commercial pilot license test has surfaced in which the students were allegedly bribing the officials of Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) in between Rs 6 lakh and Rs 10 lakh to obtain pass certificates.

According to sources, the network was hand-in-glove with some of the DGCA officials. The students are required to take five exams conducted by the DGCA to obtain commercial pilot license. Except Commercial License exams, the members in the racket used to take contract for the rest of four papers.

Normally, the students are supposed to submit the question papers after marking the optional answers and the paper cannot be taken outside. But these question papers were taken outside the class room and the students, who had bribed the officials, were provided the list of alternative answers.

The racket has been active for several years and has reportedly been linked with the DGCA.  Dainik Jagran has obtained the copies of the two question papers held in 2007. The question paper was out from the classroom within 10 minutes on April 26, 2007.  The question paper and the answersheet were faxed from Om Communication telephone booth.

The DGCA spokesperson, PK Mohanty, says, “We have not received any such information in this regard.”

Mohanty is slated to come to Delhi on June 20 to look into the matter.
