The Indira Gandhi International Airport in the Indian capital New Delhi has initiated improvements after an opinion article posted on Nepalnews complained of bad treatment to Nepali passengers at the airport.
The Quality and Service Delivery Department of the airport also expressed “deep regret” to the unpleasant experiences of the passengers as mentioned by Nepalnews Guest Columnist Dr Sanjaya Gajurel, a Nepali computational scientist based in the US, in his article “Plight of a Nepali at Indian Transit” published last month.
