AIR INDIA - PROFIT BEFORE DIVESTMENT
As per Rajiv Bansal who took over as Chairman and Managing Director Air India in August this year, higher revenue, healthy profit, on-time flights and better connect with the fliers are among the top goals for the state-owned airline before it goes for privatisation. “I have a very basic target which is to run the airline profitably,’’ Rajiv Bansal told the media in an interview. The airline can be run efficiently only with the help of my colleagues, he said. Air India made a loss of Rs 3,643 crore on a revenue of Rs 20,613 crore in the financial year 2016-17.
