Mallya promises to pay employees   2 comments

n a bid to avert unrest over delayed salaries, Kingfisher Airlines chairman Vijay Mallya has told his staff that their dues will be paid in a phased manner from Wednesday.

“All junior staff will be paid before Easter, April 4. All pilots and engineers will be paid April 9 and 10,” he wrote. “My focus now is to start paying your seriously overdue salaries.”

Mallya assured his employees that he would be available at all major stations from this week to address the staff’s concerns.

“Despite all my other commitments to UB (United Breweries) companies, I am personally passionate about and committed to your airline.”

The letter stated that the company can now pay the overdue salaries as its bank accounts have been un-frozen following payments worth Rs.44 crore to the income tax department and Rs.20 crore as service tax.
