New Delhi: Tata Sons Ltd executive chairman N. Chandrasekaran has said that the group is eyeing Air India Ltd’s disinvestment being executed by the government.
The group, however, needs more details from the government on the process, said Chandrasekaran in an interview.
Chandrasekaran said the group cannot remain with a “fleet of just over a dozen planes”, referring to group’s new airlines Vistara, which runs in alliance with Singapore Airlines.
On June 21, it was reported that the group had sought details of the Air India disinvestment from government officials. Chandrasekaran’s statement is the first formal statement by the Tata Group on Air India.
The Tata Group has in the past expressed interest in acquiring stake in the national carrier. Air India currently has a debt of Rs 52,000 crore.
