Too soon to talk about privatisation: Air India board


Any talk of privatising Air India would be “premature” at this stage even as there is a need to re-visit its Turnaround Plan (TAP) in view of the changing micro-economic situation, top sources in AI Board have said.

They said that the advisory panel, which the government is mulling setting up for the national carrier, should have academicians and independent analysts as its members for a “fair” and “objective” assessment of its viability as a national carrier.

“It would be too early to talk about privatisation of Air India at this stage. What you actually need is a complete re-look at the airline’s revival plan and then decide whether it should remain with the State or go to private hands,” a source told PTI here.
