In a meeting scheduled to be held today, the aviation ministry has called airlines, engine maker and the aviation regulator to discuss the issue, the report said.
The ministry may ask the companies to halt induction plans of P&W engines-powered Airbus A320 Neos till the issue is rectified.
The development comes after an incident last month when smoke filled inside an Indigo Airbus320neo flying from Jaipur to Kolkata after which the aircraft had to make an emergency landing in Kolkata. In several other cases, the aircrafts have experienced engine snags due to vibrations, the report added.
