In the meantime, Air India’s Pilot unions on Friday adverse the ten per cent cut in personnel’ allowances, terming the selection as “unequal” and that goes against the spirit of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s appeal to the groups to make certain that the salaries of the personnel are not slashed amid the coronavirus pandemic.
Air Iindia pilots wrote to CMD of Air India announcing, “by using effecting a cut best on allowances, administrators & mgmt executives have deviously exempted themselves from any significant austerity cut as their allowances are extraordinarily small. The pay reduce on allowance is unequal&no longer ideal to us.”
