Despite strong protests from the unions in Air India and the Central trade Unions, Air  India is moving fast for strategic disinvestment as per the decisions of the government. Private companies have been pressing the government to keep away Air India from the sky so that they can exploit the travellers without any limit and be the unquestioned kings of the sky.

Though some of the government spokesmen were telling that Air India disinvestment has not been decided, the Air India management is moving forward with the process. Five internal project teams have been constitutes as reported in Hindu dated 22-11-2017 to work towards ensuring that the timelines set by the government in the disinvestment matter is achieved.

It is necessary that the disnvestment move of the government is stopped.
