Explaining the matter to the employees, Sanjay said, "We got hit by some large unexpected payments which had to be addressed on an emergency basis. It will take us another week before we complete the salary disbursements.
"For some of you working at the airports, we have arranged a
cash advance of Rs 5000," he added.
The latest move came after half of its senior pilots quit the job in the last three months. Several employees haven't received their salaries for nearly three months.
On the other hand, Sanjay has been summoned by the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) to appear before the aviation regulator on Tuesday, Feb 21.
Meanwhile, the DGCA has asked for an inquiry into the matter as a series of flights were cancelled for the past three days.
