No work, no training, Court tells Air India pilots
New Delhi, May 30 (ANI): The Delhi High Court on Wednesday ruled that the striking Air India pilots have no right to train on advanced Boeing 777 as long as they do not resume work.
Refusing to hear an Air India appeal against the May 11 order that had stayed the training of more pilots till the implementation of Justice Dharmadhikari report, a bench of Acting Chief Justice A K Sikri and Justice Rajiv Sahai Endlaw said, "let them call off the strike, we will then hear the matter."
The court, however, refused to disrupt the ongoing training of the Air India pilots.
"So long as they (Air India pilots) are on strike, the court is not inclined to hear the matter. They cannot go on strike as well as get training simultaneously," the bench observed.
The bench, while posting the matter for hearing in July, made it clear that if the pilots call off their strike, they can file an application for hearing the matter.
"As they are on strike, they have no right to get any training. If the strike is called off they can move an application for hearing of the matter," the court said.
The order came after Air India's counsel Lalit Bhasin submitted to the court that the May 11 was wrong in staying the training being imparted to the Air India Pilots for Boeing 777.
He also argued that staying the training will cause financial losses and the advance flights will be grounded.
According to Air India, 200 Commanders (chief pilots and 200 First Officer (co-pilots) need to undergo training for Boeing 777 but at present only 64 Commanders and 62 co-pilots are undergoing training. (ANI)
