India now allows phones in flight mode on planes

India now allows phones in flight mode on planesThe government of India has signed into law, the permission to use a mobile phone on an aeroplane during flight, provided it’s on airplane mode, also known as offline mode in some phones.

The DGCA has implemented the Civil Aviation Requirement which now allows phones, tablets and laptops to be used in flights. Passengers can listen to music, play video games,  watch movies and other things that does not require a phone to be connected to a network.

So from now on, if you are traveling in India by air, don’t be shocked when the hostess announces “please put your mobile phones on the flight mode” instead of “switch off your mobile phone”.
