About 50 Air India pilots have resigned due to non-payment of allowances and delay in payment of their salaries this year, the Civil Aviation Minister, Mr Vayalar Ravi, said on Wednesday.

“In 2011, 34 pilots of erstwhile Indian Airlines and 15 of the erstwhile Air India submitted their resignations,” Mr Ravi said in response to a question in the Lok Sabha.

He said most of the pilots cited non-payment of allowances and delay in payment of salaries as reason for resignation. The cash-strapped national carrier has suffered a loss of Rs 20,192.03 crore since 2007-08 to 2010-11.

The airline has failed to give salary and productivity-linked incentives to 30,000 employees on time. The management owes one month's salary to pilots and other employees.
