An official gave this information. “The Department of Investment and Public Asset Management (DIPAM) has started meetings and road shows to ascertain the interest of investors in AIASL and AIESL. We will soon invite EOIs from interested bidders.” The government had sold debt-ridden Air India to the Tata group in October last year for Rs 18,000 crore. In this way, Air India was completely handed over to Tata in January.

Valuation of both the companies Rs 15,000 crore

However, four of Air India’s subsidiaries – Air India Airport Services Limited (AIASL), Air India Engineering Services Limited (AIESL), Alliance Air Aviation Limited (AAAL) and Hotel Corporation of India Limited (HCI) – were not part of the deal. . These subsidiaries and non-core assets worth around Rs 15,000 crore have been transferred to an SPV – Air India Assets Holding Limited (AIAHL). The government had then said that these subsidiaries and non-core assets would be sold later. In the same sequence, DIPAM organized investor meetings for the privatization of AIASL and AIESL.
