N. Chandrasekaran, the chairman of Tata Sons, who controls the entire Tata conglomerate, called on Prime Minister Narendra Modi in Delhi on Thursday ahead of the official handover of Air India after the Tata group won the bid on October 8, 2021, leaving behind its competitor SpiceJet.
Tata won the bid with a whopping Rs 18,000 crore and took Air India back after 69 years.
This meeting is the final call, in aviation lingo, that now Air India is no longer a government of India enterprise, and has become a private entity.
