Air India to clear unpaid dues of pilots

DELHI

After many years, Air India had some good news for its disgruntled pilots. The pilots have had at least a month of flying allowance as dues for almost two years as the airline had delayed salaries and could not pay them in time.

Now, AI has promised to pay the unpaid allowance on October 15. “After that our payment will be current and there will be no dues. However, this does not account in the 25% pay cut that AI has implemented on its own,” said a member of Indian Commercial Pilots’ Association ( ICPA).

AI’s outgoing chairman Rohit Nandan is learnt to have promised the employees that he would ensure the airline is current with their salary payments before he leaves in a month or so. Nandan’s three-year-term as CMD is over and the government is looking for a suitable officer to succeed him as the Modi government is not in favour of giving extensions to senior officials.
