Air India may have constituted a committee to ensure the implementation of the Dharmadhikari Report but a certain section of its employees are in no mood to wait anymore. CNBC-TV18's Sunanda Jayaseelan learns that even as the committee looks for ways to resolve pay parity issues amongst others, employees who have been getting their salaries on a staggered basis say they are fed up with the way things are being run.

A section of pilots of what was the pre-merger Air India, the Indian Pilots’ Guild, had gone on strike for about 58 days. It had been called off in July and the bulk of the salary was cleared before Diwali. A part of funds raised from NCD issue was used to pay the outstanding salaries.

However, CNBC-TV18 understands from sources that all certified employees, which is basically your pilots and engineers, get about 60-80 percent of their total salary as variable pay. After the Dharmadhikari Report was formalised a committee was set up and it was decided to do away with this entire variable pay. The reason given was that the company is not making profits. Therefore, at the moment employees say there is no clarity on just what is going to happen of that huge chunk of their salaries. Are they going to get it? When are they going to get it? How much they are going to get it?

CNBC-TV18 tried to reach out to Air India to get more clarity on the matter. The company says that it is facing no shortage of pilots. However, sources say nearly 10 percent of all pre-merger Air India pilots have left the company since July alone and remaining are waiting more clarity from the company. But till that comes they are of course looking for avenues outside of the company.
