(NBCC) at a consideration of Rs.19.81 crore. The sale process was undertaken by way of e-tender through M/s Metal and Scrap Trading Corporation (MSTC).
As Air India was incurring losses for several years, it was decided by the Government that in order to augment its non-tax revenues, Air India should monetize by way of sale/ lease/joint venture its immovable properties which are lying unutilized.
