new Delhi. Domestic private airline company IndiGo has now once again announced a cut in the salaries of its employees, after it withdrew the decision to cut the salaries of its employees. In an e-mail sent to employees, IndiGo CEO Ronjoy Dutta said that we paid full salary in March and April but salaries of senior employees will have to be cut from May. He said that for the months of May, June and July, there will be a reduction in the salary of the employees under the limited, without pay leave program at grade level.
Ronjoy Dutta said that we do not have any other option now, hence the decision of salary cut will be applicable from May. He said that the leave without pay would be 1.5 to 5 days depending on the employee group. Level A employees, the largest number, will not be affected. Earlier in April, the company withdrew the pay cut decision, which it took in March. The company took this decision after the government urged them not to deduct salary during the lockdown.
Apart from IndiGo, SpiceJet and Go Air have either cut wages or sent large sections of their employees on leave without pay. All the airline companies are currently struggling with a huge cash crunch. Domestic and international flights are completely closed due to the applicable lockdown worldwide due to the corona virus.
There is a lockdown from March 25 across the country to prevent the spread of Kovid-19 infection. Due to this, the movement of people is banned. The aviation industry is also suffering heavy losses. According to the e-mail message, Datta said that we paid the full salary of the employees in March and April. We now have no option but to implement the originally announced pay cut from May 2020.
On March 19, IndiGo announced a cut in salaries of senior officers. But in keeping with the government's appeal, it withdrew it on 23 April. Datta said in his message, "Along with the pay cut, we have to take another tough step." We will also send people on limited unpaid leave in May, June and July in a hierarchical manner. He said that these holidays without pay will be between one and a half days to five days according to the category of employees. Throughout this process we will take care that our 'A' category employees are not affected, which are the largest part of our workforce.
According to the policy announced by the company on March 19, Dutta will cut his own salary by 25 percent the most. At the same time, the salaries of other senior officers are to be cut in a hierarchical manner. Accordingly, 20 percent of the salaries of the employees at the level of senior vice-president and above, 15 percent of the salary of the vice-president and crew of the crew, 10 percent of the salary of the staff of the assistant vice-president, D-class and crew of this level and C. – Five per cent salary is to be deducted on the category.
