Panel to look into airport rejig plans
The Civil Aviation Ministry has set up a nine-member tripartite committee to consider proposals for modernisation of airports and the issue of workers' job security after airport employees called off their strike early this month.
Headed by AK Misra, who is a member of Airports Authority of India (Planning), the committee would have four members each from AAI and AAI's Employees' Joint Forum and one from the Ministry, an official order said.
The Committee would look into the "issues and proposals of modernising airports by AAI and employee-related issues, including their job security," the order said, adding that it would submit its report within three months.
Besides Misra, other members are HS Bains, TK Das and Ajit Dubey (from AAI), MK Ghoshal, YP Gautam, DK Kamra and Nitin Jadhav (from Employees's Joint Forum), and Hemant Rao from the ministry.
