Employee contract renewals on hold at Air India amid govt's divestment push

Air India Ltd has put employee contracts that were coming up for renewal and proposals for post-retirement engagement on hold amid the Modi government's push for the airline's privatisation, Livemint reported on Friday.

According to the financial daily, Air India has had difficulty in recruiting management staff for a long time. Instead, according to the report, the airline has usually been engaging people who were retiring from the same departments as consultants. With this move, that will not be possible now. However, the report added, the decision would not apply for staff required for flight operations.


All contract renewals, except those for the operational or licensed category, have been put on hold, Air India Director (personnel and finance) V Hemjadi told the airline's top management in a letter dated August 30, according to the report.
