New Delhi/Mumbai: A committee headed by cabinet secretary K.M. Chandrasekhar is scheduled to meet on Friday to choose a new chairman and managing director (CMD) for the National Aviation Co. of India Ltd, or Nacil, which runs the Air India branded airline. “There is a meeting to select the CMD of Air India tomorrow,” a senior government official, who asked not to be named, told Mint.
A second senior government official also confirmed the meeting.
The meeting, which is to be attended by principal secretary to the Prime Minister T.K.A. Nair and civil aviation secretary M. Madhavan Nambiar, is likely to also discuss the selection of members for the proposed Airports Economic Regulatory Authority, or Aera, that will set tariff levied at airports such as landing and aeronautical charges. Raghu Menon, who is the current CMD of Nacil, had put in his candidature to head Aera in January.
