IndiGo starts layoffs, also extends leave without pay, and salary cuts

As a part of its latest steps to slash employee costs, domestic carrier IndiGo has begun laying off a section of employees, while also extending compulsory leave without pay (LWP) for others.

Sources told Moneycontrol that the company was presently not renewing contracts of some of its cabin crew staff members, adding that it will take a look at the same going forward.

Multiple sources added that some of the ground staff have also lost jobs. These employees were asked to undergo test and anyone getting lower than a threshold, has been asked to put in papers.

The company, which had already announced pay cuts for its employees, is looking to further cut salaries of pilots under training to around 75 percent. The trim for all line released pilots will be revised upwards to around 45 percent.
These changes will be instituted effective July 1.

As per an initial email communication to employees to which Moneycontrol had access to, the company has announced that it will add "another 5.5 days of additional LWP to a total of 10 days LWP for a full-time leave program and this would be prorated for other leave programs based on available days".

"There will also be a salary revision for under training transition captains and transition first officers," said the mail from the airline's head of operations.
