Asked if the government will regularise airfares, Puri said, "It is basically to monitor on an ongoing basis how airlines pricing is working. If we can get a lesson from that, we will have a discussion with the CEOs of airlines."
Puri said the Centre is also concerned about higher taxes on aviation turbine fuel, adding he has requested the state governments to reduce excise duty on it.
"There are higher taxes on airlines turbine fuel. I am in touch with Union Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman on how excise duty can be reduced. I have written to chief ministers to bring down excise duty," he said.
On the issue of stakes sale in the Air India, the Union minister said the government is determined to sell the airlines.
