The statement added that bids of only an Indian entity would be entertained to limit the scope of any foreign bidders interested in the asset.

In 2018, Air India tried to sell 76% of stake in Air India and offload about $5.1 billion of its debt. With that much debt, Government surely didn’t find even a single bid for its aviation business in 2018.
