Speaking to reporters on the sidelines of a SBI function here, he said Kingfisher was a very big player in aviation sector and efforts to ease its problems were on.
The Vijay Mallya-led private carrier is in a financial mess struggling to service its loans that has run up to over Rs 6,000 crore. Chaudhury said as Kingfisher owed money to multiple vendors, it requires a lot of coordination and cooperation among all the lenders.
"As late as yesterday, there was a high level meeting going on. So every measure is being taken that Kingfisher will remain viable," he said.
On restructuring of loans by state-owned Air India, the SBI chief said restructuring has been blessed by the government and everybody is keen that it remains viable as it is the national carrier.
