The Delhi High Court on Tuesday rejected the plea of a man seeking exemption from re-appearing in certain tests for issuance of commercial pilot licence since he was wrongly declared medially unfit six years ago.

“If the petitioner is aggrieved on account of his having wrongly been declared medically unfit in the year 2007, he can avail of such remedy as is open to him in law in this regard but as far as the statutory requirements are concerned, he must necessarily fulfil them since any exemption from fulfilling those requirements is likely to endanger the lives and safety of those who travel in the aircraft which may be flown by the petitioner,” a Bench of justice V.K. Jain said.

The Bench passed the verdict on a petition moved by Sachin Solanki, who had sought exemption from appearing in various tests which are mandatorily to be passed within five years preceding the issue of commercial pilot licence. – PTI
