Air India salary : Cabinet to take decision

Aviation ministry is all set to take the approval of the cabinet on few key recommendations of the Dharmadhikari committee report. These recommendations are on pay parity and salary restructuring of Air India and Indian Airlines.
 Integrating the staff of both airlines under the new company has been troublesome due to differences in pay structures.

The committee has recommended that Air India salaries should be aligned with Department of Public Enterprises or DPE guidelines.

Salaries of executive pilots may be cut to adhere to these guidelines. Senior cabin crew members may also face cut in salary.

Sources said that the cabinet note is likely to recommend introduction of productivity related pay. This could be more stringent and comprehensive than the earlier system of performance linked incentive.

Air India could save upto Rs. 250 crore initially on implementing recommendations made in the report.

Air India, the national carrier, has been suffering losses ever since the pilots went on strike. The management and the Civil Aviation Minister has taken a tough stand vis a vis the striking pilots. The airline has been forced to curtail its international operations due to the striking pilots.

Air India pilots, who are now on strike, say that they are not being promoted according to an agreed-upon schedule. They also say Indian Airlines' pilots should not be trained to fly the Boeing Dreamliner, which joins the national carrier's fleet soon.

With the Civil Aviation Minister remaining unmoved on the issue, striking pilots have now petitioned the Prime Minister and UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi.
