New Delhi: A decision on appointing a consultant to prepare the roadmap for the merger of Air-India and Indian is likely to be taken on Friday when a Committee set up by the Boards of the two airlines meets in Mumbai.
The consultant, to be selected from among seven bidders, is likely to be given three months to prepare the roadmap, Air-India Chairman and Managing Director V Thulasidass told PTI in an interview here.
The consultant would also suggest whether, how and when the public sector airlines would enter the market by issuing Initial Public Offer (IPO) to raise resources.
