Air India is likely to rejig its team of directors shortly in view of retirement of some of its top officials, sources said.
While Air India Express Head, P P Singh, whose contract ended in August, has been given another extension for a month, Executive Director (Personnel) V A Ferreira is retiring on September 30.
Also, one Executive Director (Headquarter), S Mukherji, retired on August 31 and another Executive Director (East), Senthil Kumar, quit last month after he was transferred to Kolkata.
“A reshuffle of directors is likely to take place shortly in view of these developments,” Air India sources said.
Executive Director (Co-ordination), Anita Mitroo is front-runner to take the slot to be vacated by Ferreira while a successor of Captain Singh is yet not decided, sources said, adding the heads of Customer and Ground Handling Services, Integration and Western Region may also be replaced as part of the exercise.
“Although there is some hectic lobbying from some quarters to either grant extension or take on contract some of the officials post-retirement, the Air India management appears to be against extension or filling up the post with retired officials,” sources said.
