This is not a retrenchment as they were under notice period,” its spokesperson told PTI.A few days back, due to falling revenues amid the pandemic, GoAir laid off its expat pilots, announced pay cut for its top leadership and gave leave without pay to its employees.Similarly, IndiGo last week had announced pay cut of up to 25 per cent for its senior employees.ALSO READ: Coronavirus in India: No international flights from March 22, persons above 65 advised to stay at homeFor sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.
