Handling the situation calmly in a professional manner the crew landed at Shamshabad, as scheduled."

It has also sought a direction to the government and the RBI to provide relief in re-payment of loan by not charging interest during the moratorium period. On April 30, the apex court had directed the RBI to ensure that its circular on three-month moratorium on loan repayment between March 1 and May 31 is implemented in its letter and spirit.

The top court had told the Solicitor General, appearing for the Centre, that it appears that the benefit given by the RBI was not being extended to the borrowers.
