Tata Sons Wins The Bid For National Carrier Air India: Report


Update: “Media reports indicating approval of financial bids by Government of India in the AI disinvestment case are incorrect. Media will be informed of the Government decision as and when it is taken.”

Tata Sons wins the bid for national carrier Air India as they were the highest bidder, reported news agency ANI, quoting sources. Union Home Minister Amit Shah-led ministerial panel gave approval to this bid.

The final bid to acquire one of India’s biggest Airlines was filed by the conglomerate on September 15 after which business critiques believed it to be the frontrunner to purchase the airline.


“Tata Sons wins the bid for national carrier Air India. Tata Sons was the highest bidder. Union Home Minister Amit Shah-led ministerial panel has given approval to this bid: Sources” ANI Twitted.

The runner-up company was SpiceJet promoter Ajay Singh, who had also submitted a bid for the airline.

The announcement comes just a day after a report hinted that the government finalised the minimum reserve price for the airline. The minimum reserve price for the national carrier is based on future cash flow projection, brand value and slots in foreign airports.


It has also been reported that Tata Sons’ bid for Air India was Rs 3,000 crore more than the reserve limit set by the government.
