This report comes at a time when the Indian government is trying to fit a suitable buyer for Air India or rather the best way the government can sell-off the state-owned national carrier.

At present, the government is trying to explore options that will make Air India attractive among investors. There are even reports that suggest the government will have to delay the idea to sell the airline as potential buyers are not ready to take Air India's debt.
