New Delhi: May, 26.2022: Tata Group-owned Air India has discontinued medical dispensary services to its employees and replaced it with a group medical insurance scheme. The airline has also informed AI Engineering Services that it would not be able to provide dispensary services beyond September to the employees of the former subsidiary.
“We have already discontinued the in-house medical services of our own employees and instead they all have been covered under a newly introduced group medical insurance policy w.e.f. 16.05.2022. Besides, it has also been decided to wind up our medical infrastructure shortly,” the airline’s chief human resources officer, Suresh Dutt Tripathi, said in a letter to AI Engineering Services.
Firms like AI Engineering Services, AI Airport Services and Alliance Air were all subsidiaries of Air India earlier and HR rules were similar for all these companies.
