The aircraft took-off from Mumbai for Nanded at 17:34 UTC. The flight was uneventful. Initially, ATC Nanded assigned runway 28. However, crew requested for runway 10 and aircraft approached runway 10 for landing. The aircraft landed at Nanded airport at 18:27 UTC and immediately after touchdown, the aircraft started veering to the left. Finally, aircraft exited the runway on left after rolling for about 700 meters. All passengers and crew were unhurt and deplaned normally. There was no pre or post incident fire.

Crew carried out landing on contaminated runway without anticipating maximum limiting tailwind component and after touchdown could not ascertain the runway centre line due to illusion effect which resulted into aircraft lateral runway excursion.
