    The airline has advised employees to strictly comply with the order else face appropriate action.

    National carrier Air India has issued a circular to its employees barring them from speaking to media without prior “authorisation” in writing from the chairman and managing director of the company.
    In the letter issued by the personnel department, the airline has advised all its employees against issuing statements in print, electronic or social media or posting videos on any matter related to the company without prior approval of the CMD and through a “proper channel” facilitated by the Personnel Department.
    “It has been observed that there are instances where employee(s) have interacted with media or posted videos in uniform in Air India aircraft, aired views on electronic and social media portraying the company in bad light, despite the fact that time and again instructions have been issued advising employees to refrain from doing so,” the order said.
    The airline has advised employees to strictly comply with the order else face appropriate action.
    “It may be noted that any violation of the above will be viewed very seriously and appropriate action as per applicable Service Regulations/Instructions would be taken against those found violating the same,” the order said.
