The Indian Commercial Pilots Association (ICPA), which represents a section of the pilots of the erstwhile Indian Airlines, has threatened to launch protest from November 30 if the Union Government fails to honour its commitments made in May, an official said here on Wednesday.

In a letter to the Civil Aviation Minister on Wednesday, ICPA alleged that the Ministry was not serious on its assurance given to the pilots before they withdrew their 10-day-long strike on May 6.

The ICPA has demanded that the Government must implement the Justice C.S. Dharmadhikari Committee Report by the month-end and also stick to its assurance of expending the interim settlement for the pilots.

ICPA observed that any exodus of pilots would hamper the growth of Air India and create a shortage of commanders in the long run.

“ICPA is committed to cooperating with the Air India management and expects the same in return,” the ICPA said in its letter to the Minister.
