Air India comes back to Tata Group; ‘Totally delighted,’ says chairman

Air India on Thursday came back to the Tata Group as the historic divestment process was finally completed with all formalities concluding. Chairman of Tata Sons N Chandrasekharan met Prime Minister Narendra Modi as the officials started the final handover procedure.

“Formalities have been completed. Air India disinvestment transaction is closed. 2,700 crore has been received by the government. The shares have been transferred to Talace, the new owner. Consideration amount has been received. The debt of 1,53,00 crore has been accepted by the new owner. The new board is currently conducting the meeting,” Tuhin Kanta Pande, secretary of the department of investment and public asset management said.

“Today’s disinvestment of Air India is a truly defining movement that will usher in a brighter future for the employees, will help the airlines to expand its wings and soar to greater heights, is a shot in the arm for domestic airlines and will add muscle to the Indian aviation sector,” civil aviation secretary Rajiv Bansal said.
