64% Share Holder GMR Reluctant to Share info with 26% Owner AAI on JV DIAL

[New Delhi] 64% Share Holder GMR Reluctant to Share info with 26% Owne AAI on DIAL Accounts For Audit
As DIAL completes ten years of operating the international airport here, majority stakeholder GMR remains reluctant to share certain financial information about the joint venture sought by the Airports Authority of India for audit purpose.
Diversified GMR group holds 64 per cent stake in Delhi International Airport (P) Ltd (DIAL) while Mini-ratna Public Sector Undertaking AAI has 26 per cent ownership and the rest is with Germany’s airport operator
As per Sources ,GMR has been showing reluctance to share certain documents related to the accounts of DIAL with AAI even after a year of the government informing GMR of a CAG audit of the AAI revenue of DIAL.
According to them, AAI has sought various documents, including those pertaining to DIAL’s internal audit, for a proposed (Comptroller and Auditor General) audit of the former’s accounts.
As part of the JV agreement, the government-run airport operator is entitled to a 46 per cent share in the revenue of DIAL.
A set of detailed queries sent to GMR spokesperson, Sidharath Kapur President and CFO-Airports at GMR Group and DIAL Chief Executive Officer Prabhakara Rao on April 27, on whether it has refused to share the internal audit report of DIAL remained unanswered.
The query on whether GMR has refused to share with AAI documents related to the joint venture’s various subsidiaries also did not elicit any response.
Earlier , a DIAL spokesperson had responded to queries related to possible audit of DIAL accounts by CAG.
On whether GMR has provided all the documents as requested for the CAG audit, the spokesperson said AAI has not asked for any documents from DIAL for the audit.
Interestingly, on February 25, the government informed the Lok Sabha that AAI has sought documents from its joint venture partners — GMR and GVK — for a CAG audit of the books of accounts of the Delhi and Mumbai airports.
“AAI has appointed CAG as its representative to scrutinise the books of accounts of Delhi International Airport (DIAL) and Mumbai International Airport Limited (MIAL) to ensure that due government share is accruing to AAI,” Minister of State for Civil Aviation Mahesh Sharma had said in a written reply.

NDA Govt Yet To Bring Acche Din[Good Days]In Civil Aviation Sector

[New Delhi]NDA Govt Yet To Bring Acche Din [Good days] In Civil Aviation Sector After One Years Governance There Is Not much to cheer about for This Sector.Even In Parliament Govt Failed To Feed The Required Justification In The Variation Of Tickets
,Aviation industry experts say the sector hasn’t had much to cheer about during this period as the much-needed reforms have either been in a go-around mode or in holding pattern.
The government, in its very early days, had vowed to transform the industry by proposing several measures to reform and revive the sector.
Among the proposed measures were a draft aviation policy, lifting the curbs on foreign operations by the Indian carriers, corporatisation of the state-run AAI and Pawan Hans, creation of air navigation services, privatisation of more airports and reviving the fortunes of Air India. However, they are yet to take a decisive shape.
Amber Dubey, Partner and India head for aerospace and defence at global consultancy KPMG. Says “The Indian aviation industry had lots of hope from the Modi government given its pro-reform tilt, but a year later nothing much has happened on the ground despite good intentions and bold statements,”
Civil Aviation Minister Ashok Gajapathi Raju had on May 29 last year said, after getting at the helm of Rajiv Gandhi Bhawan, “We will strive to create a level-playing field for all the players and make the aviation sector more people- oriented.”
“Aviation industry was eagerly looking forward to a new transformational approach with a clear strategic roadmap which will bring the industry out of its structural mess, however, till date, nothing significant is visible and clarity in key and important strategic issues is missing,” says Sydney-based aviation think-tank Centre for Asia Pacific Aviation (CAPA) India head Kapil Kaul.
Kaul says that the industry had expected that the new government would restore transparency, remove the negative fiscal regime on airlines, demonstrate strategic clarity in policy formation besides preparing a realistic and achievable long-term roadmap and strengthening safety and regulatory institutions to strategic levels and deliver an effective governance model.
He added “CAPA believes that this government has the intent and willingness to deliver on critical aviation reforms but it is extremely important that strategic clarity is visible and intent is converted into effective implementation,”
The draft aviation policy, which the government unveiled last year, clearly showed lack of involvement of different stakeholders before coming up with an important policy document, Dubey says, adding reports, however, suggest that the ministry is now getting another committee to improve upon the draft policy created by the earlier panel.
According to Kaul, the sector needs a clear statement from Prime Minister Narendra Modi that a robust aviation industry is critical to India’s growth as a strong global economy.
“Should Indian aviation receive the right attention from the Modi government in its second year, it has the potential to grow by 18-20 per cent continuously for the next four years, giving a massive fillip to investments, jobs and tourism,” Dubey adds.
