BJP Government's Top 19 Accomplishments So Far

The ailing National Carrier, Air India, which has made huge losses over the years and has an outstanding debt of Rs 51,890 Crore, has been a bone of contention to the BJP government. So the government has initiated strategic disinvestment plans as recommended by NITI Aayog in March 2017. Also, 49% of foreign Direct Investment has been allowed, that means foreign players can chip in with local buyers in a bid to privatize the carrier. There has been a ban on direct recruitment in Air India for non operational staff in order to decrease the surplus sales and ticketing employees.
