Air India To Send Some Employees On Compulsory Leave Without Pay For Up To 5 Years

Employees will be assessed by a board in the following categories: Suitability, Efficiency, Competence, Quality of Performance, Health and Redundancy.

New Delhi: In a move meant to reduce its number of employees, the board of Air India has allowed the airline’s Chairman and Managing Director (CMD) to recommend that a non-performing staff member be compulsorily sent on leave without pay for a period of up to five years.

Employees will be assessed by a board in the following categories: Suitability, efficiency, competence, quality of performance, health of the employee, instance of non-availability of the employee for duty in the past as a result of ill health or otherwise and redundancy.

Air India CMD Rajiv Bansal can now send employees on leave without pay "for six months or for a period of two years extendable upto five years," an official order said on Tuesday.

The departmental heads in the headquarter as well as regional directors are required to assess each employee "on the above mentioned factors and identify the cases where option of compulsory LWP can be exercised", the order said.

"Names of such employees need to be forwarded to the General Manager (Personnel) in headquarter for obtaining necessary approval of CMD," it added.

The move comes at a time when the government is attempting to sell off the airline, a process which has been delayed because of the outbreak of coronavirus.

The aviation sector has been badly hit due to travel restrictions in India and other countries amid the COVID-19 pandemic. All airlines in India have taken up cost-cutting measures such as pay cuts and laying off employees.

India resumed domestic passenger flights from May 25 after a gap of two months due to the coronavirus-induced lockdown.

However, the airlines have been allowed to operate only a maximum of 45 per cent of their pre-COVID domestic flights. Occupancy rate in Indian domestic flights has been around 50-60 per cent since May 25.

International passenger flights that have been suspended since March 23, will stay banned till at least July 31.
