Narrative:
IndiGo flight IGO334 from Hyderabad to Raipur, India, was involved in an airprox incident with Emirates flight UAE353 from Singapore to Dubai.
IGO334, an Airbus A320, was en route at FL330 when it was given descent instructions to FL250. This took the flight through the level of UAE353, a Boeing 777-300ER that was maintaining FL300. Both aircraft reported receiving a TCAS Resolution Advisory (RA). Both flights were observed to follow the RA. UAE353 was observed to report the TCAS RA thrice. The radar controller was also observed to give descent instructions to IGO334 to FL305 contrary to the TCAS instruction.
The longitudinal and vertical separation in area control was reported to be 1 Nm and 700 feet respectively.
