new Delhi. The pay cut of non-flying (non-flying) employees of Air India can be reinstated with dearness allowance (DA) in due course, but the loss of income for pilots is not possible at the moment. Observers say that the pay cut in Air India has been given to senior non-flight officers and other non-flying employees for optics only, as they would benefit from an automated system that would reduce their level of Kovid in about a year or two. Will restore salary. This will not work for pilots.

For non-flight category employees, pay cuts will be paid on the basis of basic increments and DA revised from time to time, while for pilots the reduction will continue, as the amount of pay cuts for them is inconsistent and for non-flyers. Much more than that and will not be recovered by DA modifications for many years to come.

The pay cuts have been doubled for the pilots. Firstly, he has been given a double whammy by reducing the minimum guaranteed amount payable to him under flight allowances and secondly by reducing the hourly rate of payment by 40 percent. Sources say that this could be one of the main reasons that policy makers in Air India have left basic payments and DA untouched.
