The Air India management yesterday informed the Delhi High Court that it has reinstated nine of the 101 pilots who were sacked for going on a strike recently, as per the Business Today report. Following an assurance given by the airline management to the Delhi HC on July 3, 2012, that they would "sympathetically" look into the cases of the remaining sacked pilots, and that they would come up with a solution to the entire issue within four to six weeks, the pilots called off their 58-day strike.
"Lalit Bhasin informs this court that a committee has been constituted to examine and consider the representations of pilots, whose services have been terminated," Justice Reva Khetrapal said. Bhasin is the legal representative of the Air India management. The court added that, "Pursuant to this, the pilots have filed their representation with the committee, which has been considered in its sittings on July 19 and 21, 2012 in Delhi and Mumbai, respectively."
