Change India's aircraft call sign 'VT', requests a BJP youth wing leader to aviation ministry
Updated : June 21, 2019 12:09 PM IST
The prefix 'VT' stands for Victorian or Viceroy Territory, which is the nationality code that each aircraft registered in India is required to carry.
The call sign indicates which country the aircraft is registered in and every country is required to follow this norm.
This is not the first time leaders are approaching the government to change the aircraft call sign. In 2016, BJP member Tarun Vijay had also said the registration number of Indian aircraft marks the legacy of 'British Raj'.
