It is understood that the Air India Specific Alternative Mechanism (AISAM) or the panel which has been formed for the divestment of Air India, under the leadership of the Home Minister Amit Shah, is expected to meet soon to approve the winning bid for Air India.
Tata Group is the leading contender for buying Air India.
The valuation advisor and the transaction advisor have made their presentations to the government and after these presentations were made, the reserve price was fixed.

It is also understood that the government aims to completely handover the company to its new owners by December.
