We Haven't heard from Kingfisher Airlines after FDI in India



: Kingfisher
lenders today said the debt-ridden carrier has not informed them of anything concrete after 49 per cent FDI was allowed in airlines on September 14.

However, an SBIBSE -0.70 % official said lenders are likely to meet the Kingfisher management soon. This will be the first meeting after the government allowed 49 per cent FDI in domestic airlines.

"We have heard nothing concrete from them after the policy relaxation on FDI. Newspaper reports say they are in talks (with foreign airlines to divest stake). I am sure Mallya will come to us when he has something tangible," SBI Chairman Pratip Chaudhuri told reporters here.

Earlier, the 17-member bankers consortium had met here and had asked airline promoter Vijay Mallya to personally make a presentation on turnaround plan.

SBI has the largest exposure of Rs 1,500 crore to the airline which has not been serviced since this January.

Chaudhuri further said that he expects the next meeting in the first half of October.

"The brand Kingfisher is very important for Mallya and the talk of selling non-core assets like Mangalore Chemicals & Fertilisers rpt Mangalore Chemicals & Fertilisers is welcome," Chaudhuri said, adding "Mallya is keen to keep control of Kingfisher...So the sense we have from him is that he is willing to do everything possible, including big sacrifices."

However, an SBI official said the meeting could be early as in the next couple of days.

The airline, which has not reported a single quarter of profit since its launch in May 2005, is sitting on a debt pile of around 15,000 crore and accumulated losses and is operating a skeletal fleet of under 10 aircraft.

From being the No 2 airline till a year ago, its market share stood at 3.2 per cent in August, the lowest among all the seven airlines in the country.
