“Committee looking into airlines problems”

Civil Aviation Minister Ajit Singh today said that a committee of secretaries, set up to look into the problems being faced by Air India, is expected to submit its report soon.



New Delhi: A committee of secretaries, set
up to look into the problems being faced by Air India, is
expected to submit its report soon suggesting solutions.

"We have constituted a Committee of Secretaries. They, I
think, met yesterday or day before. I have to see their
report. Then the (Group of) ministers will meet," Civil
Aviation Minister Ajit Singh told PTI here today.

He was responding to a question whether government was
planning any bailout package for the beleaguered national
carrier.
The new Civil Aviation Minister said the Committee of
Secretaries was also looking into the problems being faced by
the airline industry and would suggest measures. "They are
looking into ATF and many other issues," he said.

Singh said, as he was new to the Ministry, he was still
trying to understand the issues concerning aviation sector and
its problems.
"Let me understand the issues, what is happening, what is
not," he said.
The Indian air carriers have been asking government help
to deal with the problems being faced by them, including high
taxes on jet fuel.
