New Delhi, Jun 11: Cash-strapped Air India airlines has decided to sack all its striking pilots and hand over them their termination letters on Tuesday, said reports.

"Tough action" against 300 pilots will be taken by the airlines, said airline sources.

"I have already said that the strike is already over from our side. If the management has to take any action, they will take as per the labour law," said Civil Aviation Minister Ajit Singh.

He had earlier said that alternative plans were being made to ensure that operations of the state-run carrier were normalised in two-three months so that the revival plan could be put in place.

He further said that the management was in touch with the 500 expat pilots.

Lashing at the pilots, he said that the strike was illegal and "without any logic" and it was clear that "they don't want to work with this organisation (Air India)."

"I have maintained that there will be no victimisation, we will not be vindictive," he said on the fact that the strike was still continuing.

"What they are doing is inexplicable .... I don't know what they are expecting," he said.
