The Tata group has officially taken over its only national airlines Air India. Under the vision of privatisation by the government of India and Prime Minister Modi, the company has finally come to a full circle with Tata group possessing 100 percent stake in Air India. The journey originally began when Jehangir Ratanji Dadabhoy (JRD) Tata started the airlines in 1932 as Tata airlines after which, in the year 1946, the division of aviation by Tata sons took place and the airline was listed as Air India.
Air India, in the year 1953 was announced as the national aviation and was split as a domestic airline and an international carrier. JRD made efforts and fought dynamically when Jawaharlal Nehru announced the nationalisation of Air India. But now the Tata Group has again taken over the airlines that it started. The Tata Group now, have all eyes on it as there are expectations that the company will change the fortune of the aviation, as Air India has been mocked at times for various reasons in the international affairs.
Tata Group has acquired 100 per cent stake in Air India.
There are several issues that Tata will address, including the better quality of the aircrafts, meals that are to be served to the passengers, on-time performance of the airlines, and many others that made Air India a laughing spot. The stakes of the Tata group become even higher as the company is also operating the well known Vistara airlines as a joint project with Singapore airlines. Vistara airlines have carved a great position for itself as a premium airlines in the industry with services like best food, new technologies like wi-fi, new and better aircrafts and cabin crew that is smart dressed in a presentable way.
