Government Denies News of Tata Sons Winning Air India Bid

Air India

The government has denied media reports that the Tata group has won the bid for Air India. Bloomberg had earlier reported that the Tata group won the bid for Air India after more than half a century after handing over control of the national carrier to the government. But, the Department of Investment and Public Asset Management said in a tweet, “Media reports approving financial bids by Government of India in the case of AI disinvestment are incorrect.”

Ajay Singh, chairman of Tata Group and SpiceJet, had bid for the debt-ridden state-run Air India earlier this month in his capacity. In December 2020, the government had invited Expression of Interest for the disinvestment of Air India. Four bidders entered the race to pick up the troubled airline, but Ajay Singh, CEO of the Tata Group and SpiceJet, was the only one to reach the final stage.

This is the second attempt by the PM Modi-led government to sell Air India. The Center had earlier unsuccessfully tried to sell the troubled airline in March 2018. However, its expression of interest to sell a 76 per cent stake in Air India had no takers at that time due to concerns about the airline’s rising debt.

According to reports, Air India has incurred over Rs 70,000 crore, and the government loses around Rs 20 crore for running the national carrier every day. The troubled airline, which ruled India’s skies, began to lose ground with the advent of private airlines in the 1990s and no-frills airlines in the mid-2000s. The merger with the state-owned domestic airline Indian Airlines in 2007 proved to be the final nail in Air India’s coffin.

But despite its precarious finances, Air India still controls over 4,400 domestic and 1,800 international landing and parking slots at domestic airports and 900 places abroad.
