The Director General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) has reportedly banned Apple MacBook Pro 15 inch laptops on flights in India. Due to the safety reasons of the passengers.
The order stands for those peoples who have bought the 15-inch version of the Apple laptop between September 2015 and February 2017.
These are the same models, which Apple had recalled a couple of months back, when a limited number of older generation 15-inch MacBook Pro units where found to be containing battery that may overheat and pose a safety risk.
These units can be specifically identified by their product serial number.
The DGCA informed fliers about its notification with this tweet earlier on Monday.

These models were said to be carrying battery units which could overheat due to some issues, and this would invariably put everyone flying in danger.
