I have organised funding so that we can pay your seriously overdue salaries which is a source of great personal sorrow to me, Mallya said.
We are currently handicapped as our bank accounts are frozen by the tax authorities. I have been working tirelessly to resolve the issue through negotiation, he added.
The airlines bank accounts have been frozen since February 18 as the airline failed to deposit R422 crore of tax deducted from salaries in the last two months. It failed to meet the commitment of R15 crore for its employees' provident fund. He admitted that the airlines wings had been clipped, but said, We were the biggest and the best. We may not be the biggest but we remain the best for our guests.
