In this paper, we discuss the history of the established laws for carrier liabilities in India and explain the transition of the laws from being pro-carrier nature to pro-consumer nature. The transition happened through the enforcement of the concept of willful misconduct to break the monetary limits. The transition also happened with an essentially no-fault based system in place for damage claims under the new and higher limits, with a pure fault based system for claims over the established limits. The paper also gives a brief overview of the aviation sector in India, the information about the Regulatory bodies and the key legislations governing the Aviation sector in India. The paper throws light on different conventions and protocols and historic events that took place, in order to achieve the present day liability laws and limits accepted in India. © 2020 The Authors.
