A flight from New Delhi, India to the eastern city of Patna was canceled after a medical test on crew members revealed the pilot had consumed alcohol. About 50 pilots every year in India are being grounded because they had consumed alcohol before taking a flight. The Director General of Civil Aviation (DGCA), a body controlling airline operations in India, said dozens of pilots are found to have consumed alcohol during routine tests every year. Civil aviation rules specify that pilots and cabin crew cannot consume alcohol 12 hours before taking a flight. A pilot can be grounded for three months and can lose his license if he repeats the mistake again.
