TIA General Manager Raj Kumar Chhetri says efforts are currently underway to install new devices in the system so as to resume the flights at the earliest.

“The voice communication control system (VCCS) could not work due to problems in the power supply of area approach,” he says, “We have extra devices. Our engineers are working on it.”
