New No-Fly Rules: Government Sets 3 Levels Of Unruly Behaviour - NDTV.com

To qualify for the no-fly list, passengers should have either created problems on either a flight or at an airport; any disruption to what's considered "a normal flying process" will be considered an offense.

Offences have been categories in three levels; level 1 constitutes disruptive behaviour such as physical gestures, level 2 includes physically abusive behaviour, sexual harassment and level 3 is for murderous assault or life threatening behavior and damage to aircraft operating systems.

Existing rules authorise airlines to bar a person at the time of boarding if a passenger's conduct has been disruptive or threatened the security of co-passengers or the flight.

For Level 1 disruptive behaviour, passengers can be barred from flying for three months. The penalty for Level 2 behaviour, which is physically abusive behaviour, is a ban on flying for six months.
"The punishment of suspension for unruly behaviour applies to domestic carriers. If international carriers want this input, they can use it," Choubey said.
He further said airlines can ban a passenger from flying immediately after an offence, but the passenger won't come on the national no-fly list immediately.
