Outstanding salaries of KFA pilots must be paid: HC

The Delhi High Court has directed the grounded Kingfisher Airlines to pay the outstanding salaries of three of its ex-pilots who had moved court over non-payment.

Justice Rajiv Sahai Endlaw disposed of the case while asking the company to pay the salaries with 10 per cent interest till the month salaries are due. Captain Sanjeev Kumar Ahuja had filed the case against Kingfisher Airlines seeking recovery of around Rs.26 lakh, his outstanding salary for five months.

Moving the court through advocate M K Ghosh, Ahuja had said because of the insecure financial environment, he had to undergo a lot of hardship and liquidate all his assets to support his family. The private airline has been grounded since October 2012.

Justice Endlaw asked Kingfisher Airlines to pay Rs 25,37,500 to Ahuja with 10 per cent interest. Along with Ahuja, the court also allowed the pleas of Captain Aaditya Jugal Garg and Captain Amar Bhatia for their outstanding salaries.
