The DGCA official said since then, there have been three cases of the in-flight shutdown of A-320 Neos fitted with one affected PW1100 engine. The aircraft was travelling from Ahmedabad to Lucknow.

The DGCA also asked both airlines to not refit these engines (PW1100 engines beyond serial number 450) which are part of their inventory as spares). The problem with the PW1100G engines was first red-flagged by the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) last month, following which certain restrictions were imposed on flying such aircraft.

The directive followed instances of the engines shut-down during flights and rejected take-offs involving the A320 neo family aircraft.

In a statement, P&W said, it is working closely with customers to minimise disruption. The corrective action has been approved and we have already begun to deliver production engines with the upgraded configuration.

At the same time Pratt & Whitney said that the "aircraft on ground situation" may take until the end of the second quarter to address, Bloomberg reported. "GoAir has received the directive from the DGCA for immediate grounding of all late serial number P&W engines. We have complied immediately", a GoAir spokesperson said. "We are in receipt of the communication from the DGCA and we shall comply promptly with the directions of the DGCA".

Aircraft manufacturer Airbus now offers two engine choices for its Airbus A320 Neos: P&W Pure Power PW1100G-JM and the CFM LEAP-1A engines of CFM.

On Monday a flight operated by IndiGo, India's biggest low-priced carrier, experienced a technical glitch with one of its engines.

Few from the A-320 Neos in IndiGo and GoAir have these engines, but the others that have been equipped with a different engine from the series can continue to fly because no faults have been discovered in them yet.

A320neos with even one Pratt engine featuring a seal found to cause vibrations are no longer allowed to fly, India's DGCA said in a statement Monday.
