  • Under the scheme, around 50 % of the seats are reserved at subsidized rates, and the air carrier companies are provided the requisite viability gap funding.
  • The cost is borne by the central government and the concerned states.
  • The plan will be valid for ten years and may be extended thereafter.


  • UDAN 4.0:


  • The fourth version of the UDAN Scheme was launched in December 2019 with a strong focus on the North-Eastern regions, the Hilly States and the Islands.
  • Airports already built by the Airports Authority of India (AAI) are prioritized for the provision of VGF (Viability Gap Funding) under the Scheme.
  • Under UDAN 4.0, the operationalization of helicopters and marine aircrafts are also included.
