The Nepal’s Civil Aviation Authority (CAAN) has declared that seven airlines are behind on their taxes and will be prosecuted. If no payments are paid by next Sunday, the previous operators of Necon Air, Shivani Air, Gorkha Air, Mountain Air, Cosmic Air, Skyline Airways, and Air Kasthamandap would be barred from operating in Nepal.

CAAN has issued three public notices requesting the operators to settle their obligations between 2020 and 2021, but all efforts at correspondence have been rejected. The amount owed is presently Rs 91.7 million ($750,000).

CAAN has the authority to reclaim unpaid debts, according to Clause 27 of the Civil Aviation Authority Act 1996. They have the right to ban organisations and individuals who have not paid their airline costs under Rule 30 (3) of the Airport Service Fee Rules 2010. CAAN can reclaim the debt by seizing other CAAN-owned businesses and properties, as well as barring them from conducting any future aviation-related operations in Nepal.

Deep Mani Rajbhandari, Mukundabhakta Shrestha, Deepak Raj Koirala, Rabindra Shrestha, Mrigendra Joshi, and Ravi Chandra Man Joshi, according to CAAN, have yet to settle Necon Air's outstanding debt of $390,000.

Manindra Lal Ranjitkar of Shivani Air is presently $ 45,000 in debt, while Prajwal Shrestha, Dr. Ujjwal Shrestha, Ginny Baba Shrestha, and Surya Prasad Shrestha of Gorkha Air owe Rs $16,000. Mountain Air, Skyline Airways, and Air Kasthamdap all owe less than $8,000 in debt.
