    Union finance minister Nirmala Sitharaman on Saturday announced easing of restrictions on utilisation of Indian air space, benefiting civil aviation sector by about Rs 1,000 crore per year.
    Announcing the fourth tranche of economic stimulus, she said only 60 per cent of Indian airspace is freely available. More air space available would reduce travel time and save on fuel, she said. The finance minister said six more airports will be auctioned for private participation.
    Also, an additional investment of Rs 13,000 crore will be made by private players in 12 airports auctioned in first and second rounds. She also said tax regime for aircraft Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul (MRO) has been rationalised.
    Aircraft component repair and air frame maintenance are expected to increase from Rs 800 crore to Rs 2,000 crores in three years, she added.
