Air India on Wednesday said that its offices will function in 'full strength' from July 20. However, the national carrier said that it will consider 'work from home' option for some employees.

"AI offices will function in full strength from 20th July. 'Work from Home' option can be considered for employees who are at higher risk due to medical conditions, pregnant women & employees in containment zones," Air India was quoted as saying by news agency ANI.

Air India was in news on Wednesday for taking the decision to send section of its workforce on Leave Without Pay (LWP) for 5 years. The employees will be chosen on the basis of various parameters.

The airline's board of directors have authorised its Chairman and Managing Director Rajiv Bansal to send employees on LWP "for six months or for a period of two years extendable upto five years, depending upon the following factors - suitability, efficiency, competence, quality of performance, health of the employee, instance of non-availability of the employee for duty in the past as a result of ill health or otherwise and redundancy", the order said on Tuesday.

The departmental heads in the headquarter as well as regional directors are required to assess each employee "on the above-mentioned factors and identify the cases where option of compulsory LWP can be exercised", stated the order dated July 14.

"Names of such employees need to be forwarded to the General Manager (Personnel) in headquarter for obtaining necessary approval of CMD," the order added.

In response to queries regarding this matter, Air India spokesperson said,"We would not like to make any comment on the issue."
