NEW DELHI (Reuters) - Around 50 pilots each year in India are being grounded because they had consumed alcohol before taking a flight, the country's civil aviation authorities said Tuesday.

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 pre-medical tests every year.

Yikes that is some seriously scary news :/ Thanks for sharing it. I guess I better fly with a non Indian airline when I finally make it to India (and I'd LOVE to go there).
