IndiGo Airlines Announces Salary Cut For Senior Employees Starting May

New Delhi: IndiGo will be cutting the salaries of senior employees starting May and also implement a "limited, graded leave without pay program" for the months of May, June and July, its CEO Ronojoy Dutta said today.
India has been under lockdown since March 25 to curb the coronavirus pandemic. The aviation industry is in a complete lockdown with bookings being cancelled until any further orders. As a result, revenues of the Indian aviation industry have been hit hard.

"While we had paid employee salaries in full for the months of March and April, I am afraid that we are left with no option but to implement the originally announced pay-cuts from the month of May 2020," Mr Dutta told employees through an email, which has been accessed by news agency Press Trust of India.

While IndiGo had announced pay cuts for its senior employees on March 19, it had rolled them back on April 23 in deference to the "government's wishes".

Mr Dutta said in his email: "In addition (to pay cuts), given the gradual build-up of capacity, I am afraid we have to take the additional painful step of implementing a limited, graded leave without pay program for the months of May, June and July."
