Aneesh Phadnis/New Delhi 12 Feb 19 | 09:28 PM

The government has invited expression of interest (EoI) for the strategic sale of Air India's ground handling subsidiary.  

While the disinvestment of Air India found no takers, the government proposes to transfer management control and sell 100 per cent stake in Air India Air Transport Services Limited (AIATSL). This will include offloading of 98 per cent stake in a strategic sale, while the remaining two per cent stake will be offered under an employee stock option scheme.
