The disinvestment of cash-strapped Air India is likely to happen by the end of this year, Union Civil Aviation Minister Hardeep Singh Puri said earlier this month.

"Air India is still in the debt of Rs 60,000 crore and it's liable to be sold," the minister had said in late March.

The government is hoping to fetch approximately Rs 15,000 crore from the sale of national carrier Air India, it's subsidiary Air India Express and AISATS - a 50:50 joint venture partnership between Air India and Singapore Airport Terminal Services (SATS) Limited.

The Tata Group and SpiceJet CEO Ajay Singh are the final two bidders for Air India. Both submitted Expressions of Interest (EoI) to the government in December 2020 and are expected to submit financial bids.

The government's budgetary proposal is to raise Rs. 1.75 lakh crore from disinvestments and strategic sales in 2021-22. The disinvestment plan includes the sale of assets such as BPCL, Air India, Shipping Corporation of India, Container Corporation of India, IDBI Bank, BEML, Pawan Hans and Neelachal Ispat Nigam amongst others.
