About Udan : 

UDAN is short for "Ude Desh ka Aam Naagrik", meaning common man flies. With aviation being regarded as a sunrise sector, it became the centerpiece of India's first national aviation policy launched in June last year.

The lowest airfare is Rs. 2,500. The Prime Minister's office called it a "first-of-its-kind scheme globally to stimulate regional connectivity through a market-based mechanism".
