    In te r ms o f Secti on 2 s u b section (n ) o f th e AERA Act, 2008, the term "Servi ce Provider" is ,,dClined as un der :

    mean s an i) pe rson who provi des aeronautical services and is eligible to levy and clia rqe lI SCI' deoelop ment f ee f rom the embarking passengers at any airport and includes the authori ty w hich manages it; "

    01 1 the pla in readin g of th e afo re men tioned definition, two principles are clearly defined by

    the i\ 1':R;\ Ac t:

    1. Prov is ion o f Aeronau tical Services and

    2 . J':ligih ility Lo levy and charge user development fee from embarking

    passenge rs at an y a irport.

    ;\ s J) ; \ 1"FPL, we arc in co nc u rr cncc o f provision of Fuel Farm Services to the Airlines and

    h en ce forth , th e se rv ices rendered arc ae ron au tical in nature. As regard, the second provision, J)1\ j'1"F1. is no l eli gibl e to levy a nd ch arge user development fee from any embarking

    passe ngers . Therefore, we don 't fal1 in the category of service providers as per definition of

    Lhc ;\UZi\ Act and hence arc noL within th e purview of the draft guidelines as enshrined by

    the Authori ty.

    111 \i e\v o f 2 a bove , we a rc not o ffe ring our detailed comments, however in the event AERA

    ho lds a different view as regards de fin ition of service provider and its applicability on the

    serv ice pr ovide rs other than those covered by the above definition, we will like to have an

    oppo rtun ity to ma ke our rep resentati on .
