2. History
The first commercial flight in India was made on February 18, 1911, when a Frenchpilot Monseigneur Piguet flew airmails from Allahabad to Naini, covering a distanceof about 10 km in as many minutes. Tata Services became Tata Airlines and then Air-India and spread its wings as Air-India International. The domestic aviation scene, however, was chaotic. When theAmerican Tenth Air Force in India disposed of its planes at throwaway prices, 11domestic airlines sprang up, scrambling for traffic that could sustain only two or three. In 1953, the government nationalized the airlines, merged them, and createdIndian Airlines.

In the early fifties, all airlines operating in the country were mergedinto either Indian Airlines or Air India and, by virtue of the Air Corporations Act,1953; this monopoly was perpetuated for the next forty years. The DirectorateGeneral of Civil Aviation controlled every aspect of flying including granting flying
