The Tata Group may be willing to acquire around 15 per cent of Air India's total debt as a part of itsfinancial bids to acquire the government's 100 per cent stake in the national carrier, Moneycontrol reported quoting sources.

"The Tata Group as part of its bid has also proposed to negotiate and acquire a certain amount, at max 15 per cent, of Air India's debt if the government is willing to meet certain requirements set by them," a source told the publication. It is reportedly a big part of the discussions between the government and the Tata Group.

DH couldn't independently verify the report.

On Friday, reports suggested that Tata Sons emerged as the top bidder for the takeover of debt-laden state-run airline Air India but the bid is yet to be approved by a group of ministers headed by Home Minister Amit Shah.

Tuhin Kanta Pandey, Secretary to the Department of Investment and Public Asset Management (DIPAM) - the government department responsible for privatisation -- in a tweet said the Centre has so far not approved any financial bid for Air India.
