new Delhi: The government is ready to adopt all methods to sell Air India – Air India. There are indications that the central government will sell the government airline in this year. For the first time there are indications from the Central Government that Air India Can also repay a loan of 60,000 crore rupees. This is the first time the government is also talking about paying the company's debt.
Making deals attractive to buyers is a priority
Union Civil Aviation Minister Hardeep Singh Puri said in a conversation with a private TV channel that the government wants to make the sale of Air India attractive to any buyer. Due to the huge debt of 60,000 rupees (Air India Debt) on Air India, most companies are shying away from buying it. The central government is now considering repaying the debt of the government airline itself. Hopefully after this new step, Air India can be sold easily.
Government is getting offers from many buyers
According to Union Aviation Minister Harpreet, in the last few months, many foreign and domestic companies have expressed a desire to buy Air India. But talk on prices and government conditions is not being done. The government says that Air India has been incurring losses for the last ten years. Everyday Air India is losing about 26 crores rupees.
Indigo and Etihad are showing interest
According to sources in the Ministry of Civil Aviation, in the last few days, Indian company Indigo has offered to buy Air India. Also, Etihad company of Abu Dhabi has also met officials of the ministry to buy the company. But the government has not made any official start yet. The officials made it clear that there was no talk from the Tata group to buy Air India. Let us tell you that some time ago there were reports that the Tata group could buy Air India.
100 percent sale is offered by the government
It is noteworthy that the Government of India earlier wanted to sell only 76 percent of Air India. But there was no good news on this from either side. In view of the losses, the central government has made a proposal to sell 100 per cent to Air India. It is understood that the stir will start soon.
