The public sector oil marketing firm stopped supplying fuel to the cash-starved carrier from 12 noon Friday.

Indian Oil Corporation (IOC) on Friday stopped fuel supply to the struggling carrier Jet Airways for non-payment of dues.

The public sector oil marketing firm stopped supplying fuel to the cash-starved carrier from 12 noon Friday, sources told PTI.

 

Response to a query sent to Jet Airways on this issue was awaited.

Jet Airways, in which SBI-led consortium of lenders is set to take management control under a debt-recast plan, has drastically curtailed operations with a fleet of 26 planes.

On March 25, Jet Airways board had approved a resolution plan formulated by SBI-led domestic lenders, which had agreed to infuse an emergency funding of Rs 1,500 crore into the airline, and convert the same into equity worth 50.1 per cent for a notional value of just Re 1 each share.

The airline, however, has not yet received the much-needed funds.
