Things at the Indira Gandhi International Airport were back to normal at the end of the four-day strike by airport employees protesting the privatisation of Delhi and Mumbai airports.

"Situation has returned to normal. Employees have reported to work as usual," said the Airport Manager on duty.

Passenger amenities inside and around the airport were severely hit with the entire ground staff boycotting their work. Flight operations, however,were not affected.

"Everything is clean and smooth. Trolleys are in place and toilets are clean," said Padmanabhan, a businessman who arrived from Mumbai.

Employees had resumed their work shortly after the strike was called off on Saturday following an assurance from the Government on job security.

However, certain employeesare still not sure about the settlement and many are still worried about their future.

"I am working here for the last 30 years. I don't know what is going to happen after privatisation. They say they will retain 60 per cent of us. We don't have any pension. Since the leaders have called off the strike we resumed duty," said an employeein the medical unit of the IGI airport.
