Air India is again in a spot as they have failed to give its employees salaries for the month of March. Whats even more frustrating for the employees is the fact that they haven’t given any official reason as to why this delay has happened.The airline has over 21,000 employees with more than 11,000 people on permanent payrolls.
According to sources, the employees had not received the March salaries up until Tuesday.
“Since the banks were closed till Monday, we were expecting the salary payment by today, though the practice is of making the salary payments in advance in the eventuality of banks being closed around 30 or 31st of the month,” one of the sources said.
When contacted, an Air India spokesperson said salaries for March are likely to be paid by Thursday.
