No plan of retrenchment in civil aviation sector: Patel
New Delhi: The government on Tuesday said that there was no plan of retrenchment and early retirement scheme for the employees working in the civil aviation sector.
"There are approximately 52,042 employees working in the civil aviation sector in the attached/autonomous/public sector organisations under this ministry. There are no such proposals in the above organisations," Minister of State (Independent Charge) for Civil Aviation, Praful Patel informed the Rajya Sabha.
Patel said this in written reply to a question whether government has plans for retrenchment or voluntary retirement of the employees.
Patel informed the House that from August 1, 2009, a new Airport Economic Regulatory Authority has been set up to handle issues related to airport tariff and other charges.
He said Kamalpur airport in Tripura cannot be made immediately operational as it is landlocked and there is no space for modernising it, though AAI has recommended its development.
The minister also said that Raxaul airport in Bihar too cannot be made operational immediately.
