The aircraft had landed at Hyderabad at around 10:03 UTC. During taxi, a burning smell along with thick white smoke was observed in cockpit and cabin.
Almost at the same time, the flight crew got an electrical smoke warning in the cockpit. The cockpit crew performed corresponding emergency checklist but the smoke continued to increase both in cockpit and in cabin. As required by the procedure the flight crew carried out engine shut down. The smoke still existed for which the flight crew was unable to identify the source. The passengers were safely evacuated through normal passenger door on Taxiway B4 in coordination with ATC. There were no injuries to any of the occupants.
Inadequate air supply across the bearing seal, required for prevention of oil seepage in the airflow, due P2.5/P3 air switching valve being sticky and deteriorated #4 bearing housing resulted in seepage of oil into P2.5 air system causing the oil smell& smoke in the cabin.
