NEW DELHI (Reuters) - The Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) will decide on whether or not to ground national carrier Air India's Boeing Co (BA.N) Dreamliner jets after the U.S. company submits a report on the aircraft's safety, the regulator's head said on Wednesday.

Boeing is expected to submit a report on the Dreamliner by the end of Wednesday, Arun Mishra, Director General of Civil Aviation told reporters, after a series of incidents heightened safety concerns over the plane.

The regulator has formed a team to work with Boeing to judge the safety of the aircraft, Mishra added.
