New Delhi: The handover of Air India to Tata Sons can be done any day after Republic Day. After bidding in October last year, Tata Sons will once again operate Air India. Meanwhile, the airline's pilots have written a letter to their management demanding rectification of the deduction in their dues. The pilots have demanded payment of pending dues, as well as deduction and arrears from their already paid amounts.
In fact, just before Air India was officially handed over to Tata, the airline's pilots have made this demand. In a letter dated January 24, the pilots said that we appreciate that the company has been trying to settle the dues for a long time, but we are disappointed with the unprofessional way this process is being carried out. Several deductions have been anticipated in the outstanding details of many of our member pilots. We strongly oppose this.
The pilots said that the pilots concerned should have been informed of the reasons for recovery instead of deducting their paid amount. He also pointed out that the details were not provided, due to which he was paid the calculated amount. The data on which the recovery is based has not been disclosed. This proves the wrong intention of the management on the eve of the handover.
