DGCA Lifts Restrictions on New Samsung Galaxy Note 7 Phones
India has lifted restrictions placed on using and carrying Samsung Electronics Co’s Galaxy Note 7 mobile phones on commercial airplanes, but only for devices purchased after September 15 2016, the country’s aviation regulator said.

 

The Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA), earlier in September, warned passengers and airlines from turning on or charging Samsung Galaxy Note 7 phones when they are on board or storing them in checked-in baggage.

Samsung has not started selling Galaxy Note 7 phones in India as yet, the company said in a statement, adding that it will only sell new devices in the country that will have a green battery icon to indicate it is safe to charge and use on a flight.

The restrictions will continue to apply to phones purchased before September 15 this year, DGCA said in a statement.

 

Samsung recalled its Galaxy Note 7 phones across the globe this month due to faulty batteries, which caused the devices to catch fire, when they are on charge or in normal use.
