Tata-Owned Air India

Tata-owned Air India has recently taken steps to restructure its workforce, resulting in the layoff of over 180 non-flying employees. According to PTI reports, the company cited the inability of these employees to make use of voluntary retirement schemes (VRS) and re-skilling opportunities as the reason behind their departure.

Efforts Towards Streamlining

Since Tata’s acquisition of the airline in January 2022, efforts have been underway to streamline its business model. A spokesperson highlighted that employees in non-flying roles have been reassigned based on organizational needs and individual merit.
