The plane was grounded in Dubai for a week while it extensive checks were performed, before it was allowed to fly back to India. The A320 aircraft was a relatively new one, reported Indian media, which could be why the hard landing did not damage the landing gear.
According to flight tracking sites, the plane has not flown since the incident.
