Mangalore: Air India Strives to Reach Compensation to Victims’ Families

Daijiworld News Network—Mangalore (CN)

Mangalore, May 30: Air India held a press conference at Hotel Gateway on Saturday May 29 where Harpreeth De Singh, general manager, quality management sources (QMS), Air India Express, Abby John, PRO, Mangalore, Group Captain Sudir Amin, assistant general manager, quality management sources (QMS), Andie D’Souza, chief operating officer, Air India Express, and Challen Prasad, station manager, Air India, Mangalore, were present at the meet. 



Singh, addressing the reporters, said that Air India has gone out of its way to settle the final payment to the families of victims of last week’s air crash. She added that though most of the baggage had been destroyed in the fire, whatever had been recovered would be handed over to the victims’ families.

Singh also thanked the people of Kenjar and Maravoor, local government bodies, police, firemen, ministries of Karnataka and Kerala, and press and media persons who extended support in solving the problems that arose in the wake of the disastrous event.

Insurance companies like Reliance which are associated with Air India have not yet given compensation to families of victims, so Air India has acted to meet the financial crisis. Mulla and Mulla will be in the city on Thursday June 3 and Friday June 4 to solve the litigation of financing matters for the air crash victims.

Sixteen families from Kerala have received cheques from Air India. A total of 28 families have been compensated so far and Rs 2.24 crore has been released for compensation and the compensation process is still going on.

    The Compensation given by Insurance and Air India to victims who were no more in this world (the money belongs to them)not to the family of the victims so it is much better the relatives of victims to give part of this amount to poors and societies of orphanage and bad needy people like the marriages of poor families. So that the soul of decease will be peace in the other world which is permanent to each and every body after this world. Good deeds will be make in the name of victims is helpful them in their next world. I pray with ALLAH to forget all sins of the victims and give them Heaven (It is only my openion so that the soul of decase can be enjoy this good deeds in their permanent world.

    Air India is an international carrier and is doing all in its power's, what any carrier would have done, this is an immediate relief to the families of the deceased. The insurance amount will definately follow for all the families who have died. In the mean time we need to have to work towards a safer society in India. Think safety, work safely should be the new logo for Air India.

    The most important is for our citizens to realise the value of Life. Every day we have Naxalities attacks, there was mumbai attacks, where common person like you and me die and nothing is done about it, There should be ways were we can protect our people from all these attacks. life is precious.

    The words "going out of the way" used by the lady implies that they are doing a favour. However, I must say that the conduct of police & hospital personnel were exemplary on the day of tragedy. Most of them were striving day & night, without food, without water, displaying tremendous patience, perseverance and humanity in the mist of burnt bodies & wailing relatives. God Bless them.

    Dont make the victims kin run from pillar to post for the compensation.Remember AIR INDIA is responsible for the widows ,orphans and forlon parents who are forced to come to your docrs for the same.At least AIR INDIA can make amends by treating them with dignity.
    Do not force muslim widows to approach you. They have to observe Iddhat for 4 months and 10 days .

    i think we need to appreciate the fact that upto 4 crores have been ditributed to some of the victims, as interim compensation. Also, i believe the air india "angels" have been doing a good job.
    AS FAR AS THE POLITICIANS ARE CONCERNED, WE DONT KNOW WHEN THE "PROMISED" COMPENSATION WILL REACH THE VICTIMS!!!

    Langoolacharya, Belman/USA you deserve an award for saying this. This female doesn't know how to speak to the occasion especially at a press conference that too during crisis like this. I saw the you tube this lady keeps smiling. Is this the time to smile! Disgusting. Air India should apologize to people & quietly distribute compensation amount.
